      UTG ($4)
      CO ($4.06)
      BTN ($5.81)
      SB ($1.89)
      Hero (BB) ($4.06)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.06, 5 players) Hero is BB 10:club: 10:diamond:
      UTG raises to $0.16, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.12

      Flop: 10:spade: Q:spade: 4:diamond: ($0.34, 2 players)
      Hero bets $0.24, UTG calls $0.24

      Turn: 3:spade: ($0.82, 2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $0.58, Hero calls $0.58

      River: 8:heart: ($1.98, 2 players)
      Hero bets $0.94, UTG calls $0.94


      Final Pot: $3.86 UTG shows K:diamond: K:spade:

      38/38 after 17h

      Calling here is standard. If I 3bet, he would fold hands I beat.

      Leading here is the best choice, I think. A lot of hands he can call with - AQ, KQ, FD`s. Bet-size is also fine, 0.28 would also work.

      Possible draw completes. I don`t want to bloat the pot, so I check. Villain could be betting with A, K of spade. Even If he has a flush I can get his stack, if the board pairs on the river.

      I`m not sure about this move. When I did it, I said to myself - I`ll bet 1/2pot in case, if he does not have a flush(bet-fold ofc). And he might call me off with some worse, misplayed hands if he interpreted my turn check as weakness.

      As the results go, too bad he didn't pay me of on the flop.

      imho fishy hand.First u provide vpip and pfr,but not provide AF,it's very important.I agree that u can donkbet vs passive who rarely cbets himself or vs aggressive who likes raise dbets often,but against tag who cbets normaly u should try to check/raise him and it's good board to c/r cos u can rep fd yourself.
      I think u must bet turn, his range have more other hands than flushes and against flush u have 3.8:1 (about 20%) odds to fh.If opp bluffs on scary boards then u can bet smaller on turn or check then check-call his bet on the river,but u have to have reads.
      What's ur nick on PP?
      Hope it helps.

      17 hands = unknown. Would check/raise if I had more info about opponent(c-bet etc.)

      You should assume that usual standart is cbet ,so c/r first,but dbet is not the biggest problem in this hand,imho problem that u didn't bet turn,u not getting value with very strong hand.
      So u don't want say ur nick on PP. I play on PP myself and maybe I'm educating my foe at the tables :D

      Hello dienaszaglis,

      Flop: Guess I'd as well consider Check/Raising here unless I know he is rather passive with CBets. Although donking is working as well.
      Turn: But I would as well continue betting here than Check/Call it.
      River: You may even bet a bit bigger here.

      Best regards.
