      I guess my mistake was betting the turn, but i thought he called on the flop because he had a queen. What do u think?

      Peace

      Does MSS recommend to open with 3BBs ?? I don´t know cause I am not interested in MSS, but if it doesn´t, then stick with 4BB+1 per limper.

      On the flop: you can never really say what this fishes are calling you with, it might as well be some draw or w/e.

      The turn: It´s fine to bet here ;) If he was on queen he can be scared about the Ace.

      River: check/fold is the right way to go like you did :)

      Hello M1rCea,

      Preflop: Usually I would raise it to €0,20.
      Flop: I would CBet even bigger here ~$0,25.
      Turn: And likely betting for free showdown here is fine as well, we might even get value from some draws and as well we avoiding him to bet like himself on turn & river while we will have hard time Calling it.
      River: Check/Fold likely, not much you can do here.

      Best regards.
