      A pretty standard situation, but I'd like your advice on this, please.
      PartyGaming - $0.04 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players

      BTN: $4.38
      Hero (SB): $3.94
      BB: $4.47
      UTG: $4.44
      MP: $4.00
      CO: $4.70

      Hero posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.04

      Pre Flop: ($0.06) Hero has A:heart: K:diamond:

      fold, fold, CO raises to $0.12, fold, Hero raises to $0.36, fold, CO calls $0.24

      Flop: ($0.76, 2 players) 5:spade: 9:club: 8:club:
      Hero bets $0.54, CO calls $0.54

      Turn: ($1.84, 2 players) T:diamond:
      Hero bets $0.87, fold

      Hero wins $1.75

      Would you continue to bet on the turn like I did? I think the flop conti is pretty obvious and should be done anyways?

      Villain's stats (48 hands):
      VPIP 18.75
      PFR 14.58
      Folded to flop bet 0/2
      Folded to turn bet 1/1
      Went to showdown 1/6

      Hey man, well what range do you expect him calling? Pre and flop?
      Imho you have 0 fe on turn and not big on flop.
      The problem is that you dont represent anything you dont hit this board at all.
      + oop I dont like your play at all. Always think on ranges ..

      Hello Tunatic,

      Preflop: Against 3xBB raise I'd raise it even bigger here 4x.

      As played
      Postflop: Well, if you are going to 2nd barrel with such a bet size then it's just pretty horrible. No made hand will fold there ever. If you even want to 2nd barrel then do it with normal size rather less than 1/2 pot size. Or depending on his fold to 3bet we might even just Check/Fold it right on the flop while he seems to be rather tight opponent and has strong calling range preflop.

      Best Regards.

      @KillerFishes Yeah, thanks, I'm certainly not thinking about ranges enough while playing.

      @veriz Even if I made the turn bet like 3/4 of the pot, does floating make any sense at all here, seeing the opponent is pretty tight, he called my flop bluff and could easily be holding a higher pocket pair. Seeing he folded on the turn, I'd put him on AK or AQ.

      You can't be sure what kind of PP he is folding. This wont happen on those stakes so often. :) On higher stakes vs more thinking players it may happen. But definitely not vs your Bet size, he is Calling there 99% of the time with his overpair. 1% is when he loses his internet connection. :D
