      Titan No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25/$0.50BB (Titan HH Converter by Kreatief)

      SB ($86.85)
      BB ($49.50)
      UTG+2 ($24.25)
      MP1 ($50.00)
      MP2 ($63.85) (Hero)
      MP3 ($4.75)
      CO ($45.94)
      Button ($57.95)

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with 4:spade: , 4:diamond:
      2 folds, Hero calls $0.50, 1 folds, CO raises to $2.00, 3 folds, Hero calls $1.50,

      Flop: J:club: , 8:club: , 4:club: ( $4.75 )
      Hero checks, CO checks,

      Turn: J:diamond: ( $4.75 )
      Hero bets $2.50, CO raises to $5.00, Hero raises to $11, CO calls $6.00,

      River: K:diamond: ( $26.75 )
      Hero bets $15.00, CO raises All-In $32.94, Hero calls $17.94,

      Final Pot: $89.63

      On the flop I opted for a check/raise, I was probably gonna give my hand away, but with that kind of flop I usually won't get a lot of action anyway.

      On the turn I bet and raise, both small not to scare away a possible draw.

      Valuebet the river and call his push.

      No, I won the hand actually. :)

      But I've been posting some hands where the pot grew a little bit, just to make sure I'm not making costly mistakes.

      With full house I would like to play for stacks.
      I would make at least 3$ bet on the turn and re-raise 14-15$. On the river I would push.

      Bet out on flop a checkraise looks more like a strong hand and you do not want to see a forth club without making them pay for it.

      I didn't bet out on this flop because I'm only gonna get action by a made flush, a set (both unlikely) or a high flush draw (A or K, sometimes lower ones too).
      By check/raising, I do give away my hand, but if he doesn't have anything he's gonna fold to my donkbet anyway, so I just opted to let him contibet and then I'd take the pot down right away.

      Unfortunately, he didn't contibet. So he's either holding air and has just given up the hand or he's holding the A :club: or the K :club: . So I decided to make a small bet not to scare his possible draw.
      He minraised me. Well, maybe his already got a flush (unlikely) or think I'm weak because of my bet and wanted to get fancy here. So I raised him again, not so much don't want to scare him if he's on the draw. Maybe I could've reraised to $12 or $13, but no more than this I think.

      The river is not a club, but he could be holding A K :club: , and has just made a pair. I bet something I think he'd call here with his K. To my surprise he pushed and it's an easy call.

      Don't see how this line is so bad.

      You will get action from top pair, overpair, flush draw and a couple of hands that beat you but don´t let them draw for free.

      I think most players won't give too much action with just a pair or overpair on that board. But anyway, I wasn't going to give a free card, since we were heads-up I was expecting a contibet.

      bet flop (~4,5$) /Ai vs passive players, callstations
      c/raise vs aggressive fish and Tags

      As Played:
      bet Turn ~4,5$
      vs his minraise make it 14-15$

      River bet 19-20$


      At the Turn you have only 13$ of his 46$ in the pot
      This is bad --> you have get more money in early.

      I didn't have any stats on this player, but I think most players would contibet here, so I opted for the check/raise.

      On the turn, against his minraise I understand why raise more. But why bet so much ($4-$5) and scare him away if he's drawing?

      And on the river, If I believe he has AK. Wouldn't $19-$20 be too much for him to call?
      He could have AJ also wich he would certainly call more, so you're probably right.

      Because he will call 5$ too.
      And at the river he will not pay you if he misses.

      Yes, but he will call most of the time:D

      IMO, most of the time players won't call a potsize bet on the turn for a draw that's so obvious with just one card to come.

      I agree with you about the river though.

      Bet/Raise Flop - I want to go all-in on the flop. I also reraise the turn higher.
