      Hello newsat,

      If you want to keep KQ and such hands in pot then why not CBet that small. :) I'd just Bet it like ~$0,55 or something similar. Otherwise I don't see why you ain't Betting the river for value, I'd bet there ~$1.

      Best regards.

      or should I play passively(check behind flop) ?


      There are 2 hearts and no high card.

      Then there is not enough fold equity though it is 1:1 ?

      Why don't you bet river? You have top pair and the guy checked you on two streets.

      Also I think you are giving him to good implied odds on the flopbet. Players on this limit won't usually know how to count with implied odds so don't be afriad to bet 75% as cbet.

      Once again it is player depending, if you knew the opponent and seen him folding to such raises then sure it's considerable but if we are kinda vs unknown then I'd rather not put such a CBet, they are just more likely inclined to Call vs smaller bets.

      And actually yes, if he seems more passive guy then even Checking back is much better than making such a smallish bet since you will very often get called my stations here anyways.

      If an unknown check oop on the same board 1:1, standard contibet(3/4pot size betting) makes enough fold equity ?

      I think Checking behind is better than contibetting 3/4 pot size.

      Yep, as I already said. Checking back is likely better there. Often times our A high might be even good there.
