      Position:
      Stack

      0,15/0,25 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 MP3 with 5:diamond: , 5:club:
      Hero raises to $0,90, CO folds, BU calls $0,90, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($2,20) 9:heart: , 8:heart: , 5:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1,5, BU calls $1,50.

      Turn: ($5,20) Q:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $3, BU calls $3,00.

      I don't wanted to check and give my opponent the chance to bluff me off the hand with a potsize bet. The opponent is passive and has only a 60bb stack, should i rather just check against him?

      River: ($11,20) 7:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU raises $9,6 (All-In), Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      Final Pot: $11,20

      Bet flop much more close to pot, you want to charge all :heart: as much you can. Turn I would bet even 2-2.5 because you don't want to give yourself bad pot odds to draw for set ( Turn you have 26% to hit fullhouse ) River easy fold

      Hi,

      You can bet more on the flop to 2$ although being oop I also don´t mind keeping pot small for case when ugly turn card comes.
      I think turn is c/c. He would not always bet pot there, he would not fold flush and he would fold worse hands if you bet turn again.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 3:heart: , 3:spade:
      MP3 folds, CO calls $0,25, BU raises to $1,15, Hero calls $1,00, BB folds, CO calls $0,90.

      Flop: ($3,70) A:club: , 5:club: , 3:diamond: (3 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks, BU bets $1,85, Hero raises to $6,00, CO folds, BU calls $4,15.

      Potsized raise = 9,25 so ~$8 should be better.

      Turn: ($15,70) 4:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $8, BU calls $8,00.

      This situation is different since i don't want my opponent to get another club?

      River: ($31,70) 8:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU raises $9,85 (All-In), Hero calls $8,42 (All-In), BU gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      Final Pot: $48,54

      I think your flop raise size is fine. if you make it very big, then they might easily fold Ax hands that are drawing close to dead.
      I think b/c turn is fine. He may still have worse hands than flushes in his range and pot is too big to c/f, so I´d prefer shoving myself.
