      With the two overcards (and a flush draw and gutshots possible), I wimped out of a continuation bet. But could it be justified for the times villain has no ace (and might not know a K was good, for example)?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (10 handed)

      Known players:
      BU:
      $4.00
      SB:
      $6.42
      BB:
      $4.89
      UTG (Hero):
      $1.54
      UTG1:
      $4.90
      UTG2:
      $3.44
      MP1:
      $0.78
      MP2:
      $7.10
      MP3:
      $6.25
      CO:
      $2.69


      Preflop: Hero is UTG with T, T.
      Hero raises to $0.16, 5 folds, CO calls $0.16, 3 folds, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.38) A, K, 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.25, Hero folds, CO gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.38.

      Hi,

      If you bomb the Flop like $0.31, he is folding a King for sure. Risking 31 to win 38 means he has to fold 40% of the time so that's not a big percentage if you ask me

      As soon as you check, he might bet with something retarded like 8:c9 or 4:d4 ;)

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      I agree - clear enough. Hopefully I can get this right next time I see a similar flop.
