      0.10/0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.9 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 5:club: , 8:diamond:

      Turn: ($0.60) 4:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.50, MP2 calls $0.50.

        No action of my opponent so I raise

      River: ($1.60) 7:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1, MP2 folds.

        With what did he call? Middle pocket pair, Ax, a Ten afraid of the K on the board? So bet or check on the river? I decided to bet due to FE of the K on de board.

      Final Pot: $2.60

      Bet halfpot on flop and give it up. It`s quite hard to guess what he is holding... any two are possible..

      Xylere, do you really bet halfpot on flop oop with bottom pair?

      I bet halfpot oop with 7 2 on almost any flop) when there is middle-late limper and almost without no exception against a small blind.
      He has to fold only in 1 out of 3 times to make your move correct.

      Besides, those cases when you were re-raised or floated contribute a little bit to the spots when you have hit something.

      It`s not something I came up with) I`ve read it in instructional hands ;)

      Whoa whoa whoa... since when is Xylere a judge?

      Congrats, man.

      And yes, I agree with him here.

      Thank you, nice explanation.

      I really asked to know that.

      Looks like I missed some classes, lol.

      When not playing check fold here, betting half pot instead of 2/3 of the pot wouldn't give yr opponent a hint that yr hand is not strong? giving it up later on I agree.

      What hint? I would consider it rather strange, than weak) well, from what I`ve read in the same instructional hands, unraised HU pot usually wins the one, who bets first, since both have likely hit nothing) Look around, your opponents do the same all the time) I've folded a lot of hands to half pot donk bets)
