      Missed a little value here not betting bigger on turn when I hit top pair?

      Should have been around $0.30?

      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with K:club: , Q:club:
      UTG2 folds, Hero raises to $0.07, 3 folds, BU calls $0.07, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($0.17) J:club: , 5:heart: , 3:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.12, BU calls $0.12.

      Turn: ($0.41) Q:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.2, BU calls $0.20.

      River: ($0.81) A:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU checks.

      Final Pot: $0.81

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a pair of queens (Kc Qc)
      BU shows (9h 8h)

      Hero wins with a pair of queens (Kc Qc)

      Overall seems fine to me, but yes I'd make the turn like 0,30 since he seems to be such a station and may call with any pair or low PP besides draws... you beat quite a lot there.
      River is ugly, probably check/fold is best against such a passive opponent... he doesn't seem like the kind to bluff busted draws, he's probably not going to call a third time with PP, and he may even have Ax himself

      Hello Philfox1985,

      The turn bet should be definitely a bit bigger ~$0,30 at least since we want to protect from couple of draws rather than make him get easily the draw.

      Best regards.
