      Considered C-bet on the flop, but decided against. It was potentially the best move?

      On turn I wasn't sure I believed villian had a hand, decided to call & hope for a checked river / to hit A or Q.

      Folded river as I didn't believe villian will double barrell bluff enough to make such a hero call even remotely profitable.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A:heart: , Q:heart:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.07, 2 folds, SB calls $0.06, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.16) T:club: , 5:club: , 3:heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: ($0.16) 7:spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.1, Hero calls $0.10.

      River: ($0.36) 2:heart: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.2, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.36

      Heads-up, in position with some pretty nice overcards and a backdoor flush draw... (I'm not 100% familiar with the statistical analysis of the opponent yet) However, I would probably have fired off a c-bet.

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Rather CBet it on flop than go for a call on turn. You at least gain fold equity with betting the flop but what you gonna beat on turn? I mean he can easily go for 2nd barrel and we will have hard time calling him unless we hit.

      We can't represent much either with the Check behind on flop, most likely some overcards.

      Best regards.
