      Known players:

      0,03/0,05 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q:heart: , 9:heart:
      MP3 folds, Hero raises to $0,18, BU folds, SB calls $0,15, BB calls $0,13.
      these guys are not really very good players so i want to open wide

      Flop: ($0,54) Q:club: , T:spade: , 3:club: (3 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $0,33, SB calls $0,33, BB folds.
      a bit unsure about the sizing here, have to think about pot control+protection weighing towards pot control

      Turn: ($1,20) 2:heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0,69, SB calls $0,69.
      my idea was just to get a cheap showdown, as i don't want to invest too much but also don't want to just check and have him leading the river
      of course the sizing tells an observant player everything about my hand, but this guy is definitely not a reg of any kind and so i don't bother about balancing

      River: ($2,58) 7:spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.
      if he donked my plan was to fold anyway, but of course i didn't expect him to

      Final Pot: $2,58

      Hello Tomaloc,

      The problem is still on turn that you are practically not even forcing him to make mistakes. Of course this is an option to bet it smaller but while he is such a station then I expect there even be value from Tx. I'd still Bet ~$0,80 which gains enough of protection.

      Best regards.
