- $0.05 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players

BTN: 69.2 BB (VPIP: 50.72, PFR: 10.14, 3Bet Preflop: 7.14, Hands: 69)

UTG: 149.8 BB (VPIP: 38.78, PFR: 4.08, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 49)
Hero (CO): 220.6 BB

SB posts SB 0.4 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has :Js:9s

Only 50 hands on V but he limp/calls wide OOP so far, ie K7s, ATo I've seen him donk TP and MP previously...The BU is so far a wide caller fit or fold plr so maybe my 3b was a bit wide.

UTG calls 1 BB, Hero raises to 4.4 BB, BTN calls 4.4 BB, fold, fold, UTG calls 3.4 BB

Flop : (14.6 BB, 3 players) :Qd:Ks:5s
UTG checks, Hero bets 7.2 BB, fold, UTG calls 7.2 BB

My FCB is probably a bit too large firstly

Turn : (29 BB, 2 players) :8h
UTG checks, Hero bets 12.4 BB, UTG calls 12.4 BB

Is this a check? I know only 50 hands but I've seen V donk and/or raise turn bets when he has hit the board. It just doesn't seem to me like he has a Q and for sure no K

River : (53.8 BB, 2 players) :Qh
UTG checks, Hero bets 21.8 BB, UTG calls 21.8 BB
Again, IF he had a Q he would likely donk Riv large, maybe even shove so I'm almost certain he has missed. Maybe my Riv bluff should be larger but I'm never checking here vs this Villain. I don't remember how many riv bluffs he's seen from me but it shouldn't be many. but alas he calls down with Ace high. I just don't thing he's thinking about blockers here but he did have some good ones but blocked some str8 bluffs combos.. Notes taken for the future...

UTG shows :Ts:Ac Ts Ac (One Pair, Queens)
(Pre 59%, Flop 49%, Turn 68%)

Hero shows Js 9s (One Pair, Queens)
(Pre 41%, Flop 51%, Turn 32%)

UTG wins 92.6 BB
1.6 BB was deducted from the pot for the jackpot.

    I think you could probably bet bigger than half pot on the flop and turn as this board hits your range very hard and villain should be capped at weak top pair hands when he limp calls. I think you should give up on river as you block spades which you want him to fold and he seems like he may be a bit of a calling station. The Q on the river is also way better for him and you said you think his range is mostly Qx here so I don't think this bluff gets through very often.
