      PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.02 BB (5 handed) - PokerStars Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      SB ($1.10)
      BB ($2)
      Hero (UTG) ($2.22)
      MP ($3)
      Button ($1.30)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with A, 9
      Hero bets $0.06, 2 folds, SB calls $0.05, 1 fold

      Flop: ($0.14) K, Q, 3 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($0.14) J (2 players)
      SB bets $0.14, Hero folds

      Total pot: $0.14 | Rake: $0

      I think it is wrong to cbet the flop vs unknown, because he will hit he board quite often. The turn is quite obvious fold for me. Can it be a bluff bet from him on turn? And can I call it from time to time?

      I think you can go ahead and c-bet this board as you have position and it hits your UTG range harder than it hits his SB calling range.

      When he donks into you on the turn I think it's an easy fold. He's short staked so you don't have the implied odds to try to hit your gutshot.

      Hello LuckyDimes,

      Being PFA this is a very good flop to CBet but as you didn't CBet, there is not much to do.

      Best regards.
