      Final Pot: $2.10

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP3 shows (Kc Tc)
      Hero shows a full-house, aces full of queens (Ah Ac)

      Hero wins with a full-house, aces full of queens (Ah Ac)

      Flop: I didn't bet the flop too big as I thought this was a pretty scary flop for a large part of his preflop limp/calling range.

      Turn: I felt hands he could call the flop cbet with are AJ, AT, KJ, KT, QJ, QT, JT, maybe JJ and TT, although not as likely. Many of these hands I think fold to a second barrel so I thought I would either let him try to float me or if he checks behind hope that he hit on the river.

      Anything I should have done differently?

      Edit- Looking at it now I think second barreling would be better as actually a large part of the range he calls the flop with would now call a second bet. So barreling all 3 streets the best option right?

      Hello Jeffers16,

      On such limits I often prefer to just Bet/Bet/Bet in this situation, we often miss a lot value from them, they might even Check behind for example Qx on turn. Usually we use Check/Raise turn when we are very deep and can't get his whole stack and we are trying to get bigger stack with Check/Raising but in this case, we don't really have to worry about the full stack, with just betting all 3 streets we still get his whole stack.

      Best regards.
