      I think preflop and flop is standard, but on the turn I´d now prefer a smaller bet to allow FD to call ... I think my sizing is a bit to big.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:

      $4.92
      MP3:
      $5.35
      CO:
      $1.75
      BU (Hero):
      $5.51
      SB:
      $5.00
      BB:
      $5.07
      MP1:
      $10.04


      Preflop: Hero is BU with Q, Q.
      CO posts deadblind, 3 folds, CO checks, Hero raises to $0.25, SB folds, BB calls $0.20, CO folds.

      Flop: ($0.57) 7, J, 4 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.25, Hero raises to $1.25, BB calls $1.00.

      Turn: ($3.07) A (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $2.00, BB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $3.07.

      Hello acceleration123,

      Guess it should be fine on turn. We still need to protect and bet for free showdown. Nice hand!

      Best regards.

      Yep, bet is neccessity for sure. But don´t you think that if I´d make it like 1,75$ then it would be easier for him to call with Jx or flushdraw ... ye also depends on what kind of player he is ... if he is total station or not, but I didn´t know that ... I think ~1,7$ and even 1,9 looks better from the psychological point of view for him rather than 2$.

      I don't agree with you, when you bet low, he might recognize you haven't got Ace, what if he all in? surely he want to bluff If he know you want to fold

      No, I don´t really think he is thinking that far :D
