      NL Holdem $0.02(BB) Replayer
      SB ($5.40)
      BB ($1.05)
      UTG ($2.05)
      UTG+1 ($1.59) (22/9/4.1)
      CO ($4.85)
      Hero ($2.06)

      Dealt to Hero J:spade: A:diamond:

      fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.06, fold, Hero raises to $0.18, fold, fold, UTG+1 calls $0.12

      FLOP ($0.39) 7:spade: A:spade: J:club:

      UTG+1 checks, Hero bets $0.14, UTG+1 calls $0.14

      TURN ($0.67) 7:spade: A:spade: J:club: 3:diamond:

      UTG+1 checks, Hero bets $0.20, UTG+1 folds

      After I took initiative I got a dream flop and tried to use correct bet sizing strategy in order to extract maximum value.

      My question is whether I should have checked on the turn in order to induce a call to a similar bet on the river.

      Hello belayd,

      Preflop: I don't even like the 3bet here unless we have a good reason to do that. His rather nitty side of raising, therefore often times we just isolating ourselves against better hands.

      As played
      Flop: I'd even bet it bigger like $0,25.
      Turn: And I'd still bet it and definitely bet it bigger like $0,40 at least.

      Best regards.
