      Given villians line I felt I was likely ahead on river.

      Played for pot control / bluff induce on turn.

      SB:
      $1.98
      CO:
      $2.45
      Hero:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      hey, i think you could cbet the flop maybe a little less like $0.16 - board is really dry so no need to protect and it is unlikely that villain will call with a weaker hand if you bet the pot size (unless he's floating you a lot). but i guess it's good he paid you off with air on that flop.

      on the turn i think you should definitely bet now since a flush draw and gutshot is possible and you will be able to get extra value from those hands.

      by the river, since it's another 9, it is hard to say the opponent hasn't just hit trips especially with the size of his bet. i think that with a bet on the turn you will know where you stand a lot better by the river.

      maybe a possible line could be:

      flop: bet 0.16
      turn: bet ~ 0.40 - purely because you can get value from draws
      river: check behind - you wouldn't like to see a check-raise and by this point you have built the pot quite a bit and are pretty much committed. there is also the possibility that your opponent was calling with KQ...

      however, since your opponent had air you probably got much more value out of this hand than if you followed an alternative line!

      thats my 2c!

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Well, I doubt that he can represent much with his line. :D I mean if he even had the TP I doubt he is ever betting it pot size. So therefore I don't mind your play. Nice hand!

      Best regards.
