      Not sure what I should do post flop here; check fold flop/ Cbet flop check fold turn/ value bet 3 streets? Checking the river obviously leaves me really exposed to a bluff.

      Should I see the turn and river cards as bricks - ie he's either got the straight / 2pair / set on the flop or I'm ahead? :f_confused:

      Hello AndyWB,

      Why do you Bet so weak on the turn? You are just telling him that you have a weak hand, rather make a normal Bet size and avoid inducing bluffs.

      Best Regards.

      Ok, I feel weak and I bet weak. Should I Cbet flop and pot bet the turn? I dont feel that going broke on this hand is good (pre flop is ok, but not post) so im not really sure how to play it.

      Thanks for your advice,

      Andy

      Why not CB? We need to protect our hand. :)

      So 2/3rds pot on turn? I know that TPTK (ie A9) will call down all the way here (in NL2) so if I keep getting check called I feel beat (and will be by 2 pair + alot of the time). I guess I'm just unsure of where the line between Cbet with the best marginal hand and throwing money away is here.

      ~$0,60 or something similar would be my Bet.
