      BB:

      Hero:
      $1.95

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.104 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with J:diamond: , T:spade:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, 2 folds, BB calls $0.06.

      Flop: ($0.17) K:club: , 9:heart: , 5:club: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: ($0.17) Q:club: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.17, Hero calls $0.17.

      River: ($0.51) 2:club: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.51, Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.51

      I decided to steel preflop form CO. BB is kinda strange player, passive pre, but aggressive post flop. he calls. Flop is kinda drawy, i have gutshot, so i decided just to check behind, because i don't think i have a lot of FE against him. Flop gives me straight, but also completes possible flush. He then bets pot. I called, and decided to call one more bet on the river if it's not club. But club comes, so i have to fold.

      But if club wouldn't come on the river, he is kinda strange aggressive postflop player. Could i call pot sized river bet on a 2 :heart: ?

      c-bet flop, unless player is really c/r happy. This board hits more your range than his
      Raise turn for value, since he would b/c turn with worse hands. I think you can fold river, although he would likely also pot there with bluffs

      I really think that calling stations, especially on NL2, don't think about my hand at all. So then i cbet, against them, i only cbet for value, or on the flop, on which it will be possible to hit very rarely, like A88 or something. They don't even think about the fact that i'm bluffing in 99% of times.

      Also, if i raise turn, he 3bets, can i go broke?

      Guess with the GS on such a board I'd still consider CBetting myself too. But! I wouldn't raise the turn never-ever. We are just isolating ourselves against flushes. Rather just take the passive line as you did vs his pot size bet.
