player 5

60 hands
vpip =45
pfr = 0
af = 1.0

i was not paying full attention when i play this hand i had jest pressed sit out all tables and laughing at a hand in the re player

but this spot comes up often

not sure about the best line on river

bet / fold seams to thin

check call to catch bluff from missed flush draws or one pair hands

or jest check fold

jest for a laugh see if u can range player 1 in this hand

you will see why i was not paying full attention

I think you played the QQ pretty well. The bet-sizing on the flop and turn is good for getting value from the various pair+draw combos villain is likely to hold. The river is pretty sick. I don't think you can get called by worse very often, unless you choose a smaller sizing like 1/3 pot, to get calls from KT-JT, or even something like A8cc that made a pair on the end. (What Felix calls the "wasted pair theorem"). If you check, villain may take a stab with missed flush draws or even try value-betting Tx, but I think bet-fold is probably best. There shouldn't be many 9s in his range (T9s, K9cc, A9cc) but 2NL villains can show up with some weird stuff sometimes. A small blocking bet can usually get you to showdown a little bit cheaper, and you can make an easy fold if villain raises.

Hope this helps!
