      Hello, I am posting again here, as requested :)

      I am curious about some views on how I played this hand, cause I thought I played it correctly.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A, J.
      2 folds, MP1 raises to $0.20, MP2 folds, Hero raises to $0.60, 4 folds, MP1 calls $0.40.

      Flop: ($1.27) 4, 7, 3 (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero bets $0.60, MP1 calls $0.60.

      Turn: ($2.47) 7 (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($2.47) 9 (2 players)
      MP1 bets $1.41, Hero folds, MP1 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.47.

      Did i Play it correctly? I tried to scare him off postflop. He called rather quickly. Turn he checked, me too. He bet big on the river so I supposed he had overpair. I folded.

      Do u think that if I would have made a big bet after the 7 on the turn he would have folded? Was it worth a risk?

      Your opinion?

      Peace out

      Hello M1rCea,

      Preflop: What's the reason behind the 3bet? If he is rather tighter opponent I don't like the 3bet at all. Without knowing the opponent I am not sure either if I like the 3bet either then. I guess one option would be just to fold it directly and not fight at all such hands while we are on MP.

      As played
      Postflop: If you want to Bet then I'd bet a bit bigger on flop ~$0,80 and likely give it up on further streets if he Calls the flop.

      Best regards.

      thanks for the reply veriz,

      so i shouldn't have 3 betted him and bigger bet on the flop, like 3/4. I bet half of the pot because I wasn't sure on myself. And yeah, when i'm not sure on my hand I realised i play hesitantly and that is costly.
