Did I do something wrong?

PokerStars Zoom No-Limit Hold'em, $0.05 BB (6 handed) - PokerStars Converter Tool from http://flopturnriver.com

Button ($5.32)
SB ($5.26)
BB ($5)
Hero (UTG) ($5.12)
MP ($12.52)
CO ($2.65)

Preflop: Hero is UTG with Q, Q
Hero raises to $0.15, 3 folds, SB calls $0.13, 1 fold

Flop: ($0.35) 2, 6, K (2 players)
SB checks, Hero checks
Víllain: 3 hands, 67/50/0, WWSF =2/2

pre: standard
flop: for raise: QQ is scared for flush and A, for check: probably aggressive villain and lots of showdown value

turn: i cant really beat but bluff, however i have nut draw, if he has K or A there is no point of raising?

river: still possible bluff but A and K too scary.

Turn: ($0.35) A (2 players)
SB bets $0.16, Hero calls $0.16

River: ($0.67) 5 (2 players)
SB bets $0.48, Hero folds

Total pot: $0.67 | Rake: $0.03

I think you played this one fine. I would generally check behind on the flop, as you're unlikely to get called by worse if you c-bet. You could also get two streets of value from worse pairs (e.g. TT-88) if you check the flop. The turn is a mixed blessing, as you now only have third pair, but you picked up the NFD. Calling a half pot bet is standard, but you're pretty much always losing. River fold looks fine to me. There's too much that beats you, and villain seems to be betting for value with that sizing. Since you lose to Ax, Kx and all flushes, the fold looks good. Well played, just a bad runout.

Bracelet Winner
