      PartyGaming - $0.10 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      CO: $5.77
      BTN: $13.54
      Hero (SB): $23.40
      BB: $5.71
      UTG: $15.66

      Hero posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has A:spade: K:diamond:

      fold, CO raises to $0.30, fold, Hero raises to $1.00, fold, CO calls $0.70

      Flop: ($2.10, 2 players) 7:club: 7:spade: 9:spade:
      Hero checks, CO checks

      Turn: ($2.10, 2 players) T:diamond:
      Hero bets $1.20, CO raises to $4.77 and is all-in, fold

      Villain is 17/13/5 TAG.

      I didn't want to bet flop, cause I don't think he will fold TT+ and that he will shove Ax of spades. After his check I've tried to take pot and maybe even get some value from AQ, AJ of FD, cause I though he would bet made hands on flop IP. After his shove I think fold is the only option. How would you play this hand?

      Hello Gugi19,

      I also expect him to bet on the flop after we check with hands like TT+, unless he has AA or something similar. Your line is totally fine, I would also consider such line, also I like the bet on turn, the smallish one is just perfect against his stack, well played!

      Best regards.
