      Cake Poker, $0.02/$0.04 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 9 Players

      BTN: $2.44 (61 bb)
      SB: $3.84 (96 bb)
      BB: $4.06 (101.5 bb)
      UTG+1: $4 (100 bb)
      UTG+2: $1.77 (44.3 bb)
      Hero (MP1): $4.10 (102.5 bb)
      MP2: $4.24 (106 bb)
      MP3: $1.08 (27 bb)
      CO: $3.43 (85.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with Q Q
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.16, MP2 calls $0.16, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.16, SB folds, BB calls $0.12

      Flop: ($0.66) 5 2 2 (4 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.41, MP2 folds, BTN calls $0.41, BB calls $0.41

      Turn: ($1.89) K (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1.20, BTN calls $1.20, BB folds

      River: ($4.29) T (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.67, BTN calls $0.67 and is all-in

      I think my flop bet is a little small. It should be like $0,50, maybe even more because of 3 opps.
      Since I'm called in 2 spots I don't quite know what to do on turn. I guess they should be on some overpairs or FD, so I decided to bet again. As K is a scarecard for overpairs they'll probably fold, but FD could call again.
      On river he has only $0,67 left...

      The Flop bet could've been higher, but I kinda like that size, because you want Pocket Pairs 66-JJ to call and you're still charging enough for the flush draw (especially on a paired board).

      On the turn a smaller bet might've been better. Maybe something between $0,90 and $1,05 and expecting the BB to check-raise if he has a King, although I don't really see him calling a PreFlop raise in the BB with a King in his hand. He would've (but not always, of course) re-raised with AK, to avoid being OoP against 3 opponents... if he did however call with AK PreFlop, he should've folded on the Flop. He could now only have a pocket pair higher than fives and lower than queens or some kind of draw (which also makes his call preflop unlikely.)

      The BTN on the other hand, might have K:heart: in his hand, maybe even K:heart: Q:heart: or K:heart: J:heart: . But that doesn't really matter anymore, because he's pot commited (even if you had made a smaller bet on the Turn). He's not folding to anything anymore and if you're lucky you'll get him to check behind on the river and you get to see a slighly cheaper show down.

      Hello Oly0909,

      Bet bigger the flop to protect & Bet bigger the turn and he would be already all-in on turn.

      Best Regards.
