      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      MP1 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with J, J.
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls $0.05, Hero raises to $0.25, 6 folds, UTG2 calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.57) 5, 2, 6 (2 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero bets $0.35, UTG2 calls $0.35.

      Turn: ($1.27) 8 (2 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero bets $0.65, UTG2 raises to $1.55, Hero folds, UTG2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.92.

      UTG2 is playing 14/4 AF 2.2, Turn AF 22% FCBET 69% over 4k hands. When he calls my cbet i figure he has either made a set 55, 22, 66 or has something like a small over pair 77, 88, maybe 99 if he dosnt raise it preflop. Against this range i still have pretty good equity. Turn brings 8h I fire again, definatly too small would around $0.85 be about right? When he raises the turn I would say thats a sign of very strong hand. According to his stats he's raising a turn cbet 22% I expect this to be with a strong made hand so I fold Is this correct?

      Hello dannyf85,

      Well, of course your play is fine. Although I don't understand why do you make such a small bet on turn? I'd still make it ~$0,80 at least. There are still a lot of hands which may even pay us. But of course as we Bet then we have to fold against a raise.

      Such a small bet could sometimes even induce them to raise against you. That's the problem with making a very small CBet on turn.

      Best regards.
