      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (4 handed)

      Known players:
      BB:
      $44.95
      CO:
      $47.70
      BU (Hero):
      $37.11
      SB:
      $8.15


      Preflop: Hero is BU with 3, 3.
      CO raises to $1.00, Hero calls $1.00, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($2.35) 4, A, 3 (2 players)
      CO bets $1.34, Hero calls $1.34.

      Turn: ($5.03) K (2 players)
      CO bets $3.57, Hero?

      When he bets smaller than 3/4 pot on the flop it makes me believe that he is somewhat weak, so I dont put him on ace, rather on some smaller pocket pair,maybe even FD like KQs. If he made a normal size bet I always raise it big and try to get it all in on the flop. On the turn he suddenly bets bigger than flop which leads me to conclusion that he improved. I'm in trouble now and not sure what is the correct play here...Donk the turn? Do I stack off? Just call and check/call river or check/raise river or even maybe reason to check/fold?

      You're reading far too much into his betsizes.

      Raise flop & get it in.

      As played, raise turn & get it in.

      Hello Crokid,

      Since you guys are so deep just raise it up on flop and hope him to have an Ace with what he wants to go broke, otherwise you have to raise it up on turn to get more value from Ax type of hands. Also the K on turn could easily give im 2pair type of hand.

      Best regards.
