      I was going to play c/f on the flop, as MP2 has a lot of aces in his range. On the other hand there a lot of lower pockets in his range too. So would a cbet have been better here?

      As played his tiny bet ($1 in a $4,34 pot) made me changed my mind and I pushed all in. Is there any reasonable explanation for such a small bet from MP2?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K, K.
      MP2 raises to $0.15, MP3 folds, CO raises to $0.52, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1.90, MP2 calls $1.75, CO folds.

      Flop: ($4.34) 3, A, 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $1.00, Hero raises to $3.71, MP2 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $5.34.

      Hello StaringAtGoats,

      Why not to CBet the flop? Often times on such board I am at least CBetting while being the PFA, since sometimes just Check/Folding might be too weak while he could easily have worse PPs. And somehow I don't like the Check/Raise since there ain't worse hands which Call you anyways there, they will likely fold and those who win you will Call.

      Best regards.
