Why this guy was calling with 2-2...was beyond myself.

But I don't know why I checked the river...could I have gotten more out of him since he was playing kinda...weird? :confused:

You never know with micro-donks, he may have called a 50 cent bet, but not much more. Checking was obv. a mistake, but you wouldn't have made TOO much more (if any).

really really easy river value bet. you're worried he called the flop with a backdoor flush draw, hits it on the river, and then checks it to you? don't be paranoid, too many people are content to just check it down on the end and win the pot, but missing easy value bets is the same as losing money

also, your preflop raise size is basically pointless (its such a small amount and it's micros, so they're both pretty much guaranteed to call, you're building a pot with a Q high hand that will be frequently dominated). and your turn bet is too small with the board being so drawy

I think you should have made a value bet on the river also...nothing to scary on that board for you.
