      $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Holdem
      8 Players

      UTG mtr.qq ($9.75)
      UTG+1 Hero ($4.55)
      MP1 glnexttime ($10.12)
      MP2 zzz...moto ($3.49)
      CO grzes_kid ($3.25)
      BTN shurets ($5.02)
      SB little dan60 ($14.14)
      BB zippo13_g ($11.68)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.35, 8 players) Hero is UTG+1 Q:spade: Q:club:
      mtr.qq calls $0.25, Hero raises to $1, 6 folds, mtr.qq calls $0.75

      Flop: 10:heart: K:heart: A:spade: ($2.35, 2 players)
      mtr.qq checks, Hero bets $1.25, mtr.qq calls $1.25

      Turn: 7:spade: ($4.85, 2 players)
      mtr.qq checks, Hero checks

      River: 8:spade: ($4.85, 2 players)
      mtr.qq bets $0.50, Hero calls $0.50

      THis is probably the worst flop I could hit,so I wonder, should I made an exception here and check the flop?
      I consider the bet on the river so small in regards to pot, that I had to pay it.
      Probably should see it as it was a value bet, rather the bluff bet and fold.

      Opinions, pls

      how about raising preflop to 5bb? In the SHC one says you have to raise 4+1bb per limper.
      You get more value if you get called with qq preflop

      As played I would bet really bigger than ½ pot since this flop either hits him or not. If you are going to bet that small he is gonna call with a lot of peels in which you are vulnerable. You want him to fold Kx as well and thats why you need to bet bigger

      On the river I do not think he is going to blockbet Tx and stuff here so despite the ridiculuos odds you get I would just fold

      Best regards,
