    Pre Flop: (pot: $0.35) Hero has Q:diamond: Q:heart:

    fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.75, fold, fold, fold, BTN calls $0.75, fold, fold

    Flop: ($1.85, 2 players) Q:spade: A:diamond: 7:club:
    Hero checks, BTN checks

    Turn: ($1.85, 2 players) T:club:
    Hero bets $1.06, BTN calls $1.06

    River: ($3.97, 2 players) A:heart:
    Hero bets $2.27, BTN raises to $13.12 and is all-in, Hero calls $10.85

    So I know you say c-bet and i agree with you!
    But what about river call?
    His pre flop range is( maybe little tighter):
    After flop action we can't eliminate so many hands from his range but after a turn call his range should be something around this:

    on the river after his raise all in we need 36% equity to call
    if we assume that his range is:
    it is a call but i am not sure about his range!
    OFC if we have more data on the player it would be better
    Any way comments, suggestions?

    Hi rudar47

    I would treat an unknown that does not top up their stack as a weaker opponent. Regardless, we have a very strong hand here and there no reason not to be happy to get the money in.

    To answer your questions, I would cbet this flop for two reasons: 1. when we have QQ, villain can have more Ax combos in their range; If we had AA we could decide to x/c because it would be less likely that villain would have an Ace 2. Villain seems to be a weaker opponent and can have many combos that can call us for 3 streets.

    It's really tough to tell what hands they have in their range without any information so I wouldn't make too many assumptions here and would rather, in this case, look at hand strength and board texture.

    Preflop could really be anything. I wouldn't be surprised to see T7s in their calling range. I expect them to 3bet AA, KK, QQ, most JJ, and AK
    Flop: when they check back, I suppose they would check back total air that would give up to later bets or hands with some SD value. I think gutshot like KJ would bet and I also think we cannot assume that all Qx or Ax would check back.
    So their check back range could look like: some combos of medium Qx: KQ, QJ, QT - some combos of weak Ax: A2-A9 - PPs: 22-66, 88-JJ - 7x
    Their turn call will now include all clubs that checked back flop, Tx, JJ, sometimes TT might play it passive here since they might fear a KJ?? and 1 to a straight might peel bcoz they are bad like Kx, Jx maybe. Ofcourse Qx/Ax that checked back flop will call too. OTR: they will raise with their TT that just called turn, Ax that checked back flop, and maybe turn Tx or busted club draw to a bluff thinking that since we did not bet the Ace OTF then we might not have an Ace and they can get us to fold a Qx.

      I was thinking that I made a good call regardless that guy had A10 on the end. About c-bet I understand that I need to c bet here 100'% time but didn't do so because..... don't know what reason
