      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      MP2 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with 4, 4.
      2 folds, MP1 raises to $0.40, Hero calls $0.40, 2 folds, BU calls $0.40, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($1.35) 3, 5, 6 (3 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero bets $0.70, BU calls $0.70, MP1 folds.

      Turn: ($2.75) A (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.00, BU calls $1.00.

      River: ($4.75) Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $2.26, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $4.75.

      Was it ok to bet flop here ? I have straight draw, but also facing 2 opponents.

      Since the guy who originally raised PF folded on flop, is my second barrel ok ? I mean, it is more probable he could have an A rather than the other guy who just called the raise PF.

      Hello acceleration123,

      If you want to represent the Ace and also likely CBet on flop then I'd make the both sizings a bit bigger, ~$1 on flop and as played $2 on turn. But it a lot depends what kind of opponents are with us in the hand. More often I'd play my set mining just the way that if I don't hit then just fold, you don't have to put yourself into difficult spots, take into account that you also have to discount few outs.

      Best regards.
