      Worth the C-Bet here, seems a fairly standard spot?

      Would have given up hand to bet on the turn from villian, bet river as I hope to get value from lower pair that hit on the flop (guessing most likely), or lower Ax that called thinking A high was ahead.

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      Hero:
      $8.42
      CO:
      $5

      0.03/0.05 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 MP2 with A:club: , Q:diamond: . CO posts a blind of $0.05.
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.23, MP3 folds, CO calls $0.18, 3 folds.

      Flop: ($0.54) 9:club: , 8:diamond: , 5:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.32, CO calls $0.32.

      Turn: ($1.18) 4:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks.

      River: ($1.18) A:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.41, CO folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.18

      I thought this was NL2? :D

      You forgot to include straight draws on his range (given the full action that's what he had I bet), but I'd bet/fold the river for 1/2, if they want to call with a worse hand there they will.

      True, on reflection after seeing a fold on the river a straight draw looks likely. Didn't spot it at the time, board looked fairly dry to me.

      Edited the title, old habits die hard :P

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Only problem with such a flop is that a lot of his calling range is going to continue here. Even couple of broadways will do that. Therefore CBetting on such a flop is pretty questionable. Since what kind of hand do you want to make him fold? SCs did hit/PPs will continue and also even some broadways will do the same.

      But otherwise seems to be fine, wouldn't change much on river.

      Best regards.
