      NL Holdem $0.25(BB) Replayer
      Hero ($4.50)

      UTG ($5)
      UTG+1 ($9.21)
      UTG+2 ($4.65)
      MP1 ($32.41)
      CO ($13.35)
      BTN ($4.65)

      Dealt to Hero A:diamond: T:diamond:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, CO calls $0.25, fold, Hero raises to $1.25, fold, CO calls $1

      FLOP ($2.75) 6:heart: J:club: K:spade:

      Hero bets $1.31, CO calls $1.31

      TURN ($5.37) 6:heart: J:club: K:spade: 5:club:

      Hero bets $1.94 (AI), CO folds

      Hero shows A:diamond: T:diamond:

      Hero wins $5.11


      Should I Cbet jam or 2/3 pot size on this broad? As played, I will bet/call (AI) his raise on Flop. I put him in Kx and Jx range.

             Equity     Win     Tie
      BU     25.63%  25.59%   0.04% { AdTd }
      SB     74.37%  74.33%   0.04% { K2s+, K2o+ }

             Equity     Win     Tie
      BU     26.08%  26.04%   0.05% { AdTd }
      SB     73.92%  73.87%   0.05% { K2s+, J2s+, K2o+, J2o+ }

      The min equity needed is $1.94/($8.55*0.95)=23.9%
      So, I have to go broke if I Cbet and get raised.
      On turn, I decided to second barrel. Luckily, he folded :f_p:

      Hey JHTAN,

      As you see, c-bet half pot is difficult, shoving flop would be easy as pie. So, why make life difficult when you can make it easy. :)

      With your stack size the regular 2/3 c-bet would consist of 50% of your stack, so shoving would be correct in any way. Besides that you still have outs in case villain has a made hand and will see turn and river to improve your hand. And last, you avoid ugly situation on the turn when you get called like this time.
