      Final Pot: $8.52 BB shows A:club: 6:club: Hero shows Q:heart: 4:heart:

      18/15, FTS 84%, CB/FCB 69/69, AF 3, over large sample of hands

      Standard so far. He calls ~10% from BB. Probably A5s-ATs, PP`s, 78s-QJs. Some of-suit aces as well.

      C-bet is mandatory. When villain calls, I put him on 77-99, FD.

      What are the reasons to check or lead here? My goal is to get more value out of hands I beat. Way ahead, way behind, I guess. It`s kind`a hard to pot-control OOP.

      check turn, bet/call river? (if he checks turn also, ofc)
      check/call turn, check/call river?

      This way I would get value out of smaller flushes, trip aces. And loose minimum VS boat.

      When he min-raises me, I`m fairly sure he has at least a flush.

      I wanted to just call, but... somehow I imagined, he had a smaller flush and I went nuts... :D

      Only positive outcome in this case is, that I can learn from my mistakes:

      don`t sacrifice your whole stack with flush, when the board is paired. Loosing small is a BIG part of winning.

      :f_p: <- this is me btw

      P.S. My analysis might be way off, because I knew the results.

      Hello dienaszaglis,

      Turn: Nah, I like the analyzes of yours actually, at least gives an overview how you thinking and so on. Although I'd more often just bet myself on turn to avoid Check behind and try to build up the pot.

      As played
      River: And I'd bet definitely bigger here something like $0,4 but as played I guess I am more often still inclined to Call it, just for the reason that he will anyways have hard time Calling with a lot worse. Likely only reasonable hand which pays us off could be maybe a Ax and of course weak flushes, although I expect them to bet with them on turn as well. So therefore rather skip the thin value and just Call his raise.

      Best regards.
