      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      Hero:
      $2.09
      CO:
      $1.45

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.85 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is UTG1 with A:heart: , A:spade:
      Hero raises to $0.08, 4 folds, CO calls $0.08, 3 folds.

      Flop: ($0.19) A:diamond: , K:diamond: , 3:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.15, CO calls $0.15.

      Turn: ($0.49) 6:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.25, CO calls $0.25.

      River: ($0.99) 5:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.97 (All-In), Hero folds, CO gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      Final Pot: $0.99


      Preflop, flop: standard I hope
      Turn: It gets worse. I am playing bet/fold here. Hopefully I can represent a (better) flush, especially as the A:diamond: and K:diamond: are out and villain is relatively unlikely to have called preflop with Q:diamond: x.
      River: after he called the turn I give up, but his pot-size shove confirms I am beaten I think.

      Main question is whether turn play was ok, or whether I should have given up sooner.

      Thanks

      Hello member001,

      I don't like the turn play, I'd rather Check/Call there for the reason when he raises over our bet on turn, we will have to fold. While we still could get good odds for a call to hit our FH, or even sometimes he will just Check behind.

      Best regards.
