      Okay, similar situation as I posted few minutes ago, but this time I am on SB against BU.

      But I don´t think I can really check the flop here as it may seem too week and I have the initiative.


      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      CO:
      $10.20
      BU:
      $11.10
      SB (Hero):
      $10.25
      BB:
      $3.90
      UTG2:
      $14.34
      MP1:
      $5.63
      MP2:
      $10.52
      MP3:
      $4.82


      Preflop: Hero is SB with K, K.
      5 folds, BU raises to $0.30, Hero raises to $0.90, BB folds, BU calls $0.60.

      Flop: ($1.9) 2, A, 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.80, BU calls $0.80.

      Turn: ($3.5) 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $1.80, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $3.5.

      i wld bet bigger on flop. sth like 1.5. the board isnt really that dry. do u have stats on button? he cld be stealing pretty wide here. i dont believe he has a 2. Ax is possible ofc but so is a lot of pp, sc and broadways. i think barelling turn is ok line. but as played, c/c is another option which i might do on river as well if no diamond/ bet is reasonable.
      my 2 cents :)

      Thanks for your opinion mate, no I don´t have any stats because I am not using any kind of tracking software yet. But I am planning to get one soon.

      Hello acceleration123,

      Preflop: I would do even bigger the raise ~$1.
      Postflop: And as well the CBet just invites to float you, do it ~$1,40 and either Check/Fold the turn or 2nd barrel if you see the opponent floating a lot. Although I don't expect people to float a lot on A high boards and as well on 3bet pot.

      Best regards.
