      Welcome to the nl forums!

      Small bet looks weak and might induce raises from worse hands. If you can´t be sure to valuebet turn on scare cards then just c/c turn and then either go to showdown or c/f river. Aces are generally very strong and it is hard to get better than one pair hands in holdem so I would not really like to fold them too often against aggressive opponents.

      If you bet turn for value, then make it 0.3$. That looks strong enough and won´t likely induce bluffraises from worse hands.

      Best regards,

      Well received..

      Thanks for the advice.. I'll keep that in mind..

      Hmmm.. I have a question.. If i check the turn? And he raises.. Instand fold and wait for a better spot?! I was out of position.. That's what made it harder for me.. I don't think c/f-ing Aces on the turn on a scary board is a good play.. 2/3pot on the turn sounds good.. If he called, then i'll just c/f on the river cos surely i'm beat..

      Peace Out!!~ :D Thanks a Million!!~

      Hello fr3ak1n6,

      Add to full stack.

      Flop: I'd definitely bet it bigger ~$0,16.
      Turn: Don't like the idea of betting so small. Those kind of bets may easily even induce raises with bluffs. I'd make it ~$0,36 and then most likely just Fold to his raise. Check/Call isn't an option here, especially while you don't even have many reads or stats, we don't want to turn our hand into bluff-catcher and Check/Call the turn & river.

      Best Regards.
