      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q, A.
      MP2 raises to $0.20, 4 folds, Hero calls $0.10.

      Flop: ($0.45) T, 9, 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $0.20, Hero calls $0.20.

      Turn: ($0.85) A (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $0.40, Hero calls $0.40.

      River: ($1.65) 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 checks.

      Final Pot: $1.65.

      should i have folded pre- flop? what was i going to do with 2 overcards on the flop? should i have bet for value on the turn and river? or check call against worse aces?

      I would 3-bet pf to take initiative and since he only min-raise I think he doesn´t really have there too strong hand
      flop.I´d lead out to force out AK and maybe also some pp-s I think I´d barrel again even on blank turn
      As played. i think you can also bet out yourself on the turn or at least on the river. he is not really gonna bluff that often on the river, but might easily call with AJ and worse Ax hands or KK-JJ
