      River: ($1.92) 9 :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.39, BTN folds

      I never give them credit for their minraises preflop, so squeeze.
      The flop is good for a C-bet and i also have some equity there. He calls. The turn gves me the nuts, so i put a big bet there. I really don't understand how he folded the river. Is there a way to stack the oponnent?

      like your play
      he should call you down with anything getting these good odds, so you couldn´t have done anything different. If player likes to float and bet turn you can always c/rai with nuts on the turn

      Hello Eyewitness,

      The problem on flop is that your bet ain't even 1/2 pot size bet. I'd still bet there ~$0,24 or something similar. Making it too small just makes him float you with any crap he has. But while we might make him directly to fold some weak pairs.

      As I even expect that if you hit you turn your bet size very big which even happened. Standard leak for beginners. Betting smallish on early streets with draws or some traps and when they see that they need more value they starting to bet more. Not that this kind of player would realize that but in future definitely will start to understand that kind of pattern. That with made hands you bet big and no-made hand = no big bet.

      Best regards.

      I'm aware that these play could be exploited by good players, but you won't find a lot of them at NL2 888. There are a few regs though, but against them i try to adjust the bet sizing(bet the same amount with value and bluffs). I thought it's better to bet ~1/2 pot for a bluff and ~2/3 or more for value.

      This bet wasn't even 1/2. :P Also bigger bets gain bigger fold equity. :) So why not just add few cents and maybe gain maximum of it.
