      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:spade: , K:diamond: . CO posts a blind of $0,25.
      MP3 folds, CO checks, BU folds, SB raises to $1,15, Hero raises to $3,25, CO folds, SB calls $2,10.

      Flop: ($6,75) Q:spade: , J:heart: , J:diamond: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      Should i cbet on this board? F2CB = 29%
      I think he don't fold his underpairs. But i have a Gutshot and overcards.

      Turn: ($6,75) 3:spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $3,5, SB calls $3,50.

      He checked to me a second time so i tried to get him out.

      River: ($13,75) A:heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      His call made me suspicious and i definitly mist a valuebet here...

      Final Pot: $13,75

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K:spade: , K:club:
      MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $1,00, 2 folds, Hero raises to $3,55, BB folds, MP3 calls $2,55.

      Flop: ($7,35) K:diamond: , Q:heart: , 4:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $4, MP3 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      This time i got something and the pot is already big. The normal thing to to is just a cbet so i can cbet this flops with air sometimes? But the pot is already big, can i check to induce a bet from my opponent? still can get pot big enough for ship on turn.

      Final Pot: $7,35

      Hi,

      1) prefer c-betting since it is hard him to continue with his underpairs, this board would hit your 3-betting range and if you feel he is c/c light then you can always fire turn. River is easy valuebet. he may sometimes have AT and call you down and if he has monster he would usually c/r turn.

      2) there are a lot of draws, so I like c-betting that board. Also it is suspicious if you check on KQxss board. You can bet then 2/3 pot on the turn and shove river to make sure all the money goes in.
