      Hand1:
      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      Hero:
      $25,15
      BB:
      $36,35

      0,15/0,25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K:spade: , K:diamond:
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0,75, BB calls $0,50.

      Flop: ($1,50) T:heart: , 4:spade: , 3:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1,5, BB raises to $3,00, Hero calls $1,50.

      Thought there is no reason for a 3B

      Turn: ($7,50) 3:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $2,75, Hero calls $2,75.

      His turnbet looks real weak so should i raise ~$7.5 for value and ship river?

      River: ($13,00) Q:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks.

      Final Pot: $13,00

      4B = 1.8%
      Fto3B = 65%
      FtoCB = 65%, FturnCB = 45%

      AF by streets: 1.1/1.2/2.0

      Preflop: Hero is BU with K:heart: , K:club:
      MP3 folds, CO raises to $0,70, Hero raises to $2,50, 2 folds, CO calls $1,80.

      Flop: ($5,40) 8:diamond: , 7:diamond: , 2:club: (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $3, CO calls $3,00.

      Turn: ($11,40) J:diamond: (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero checks.

      Went for some sort of pot control since i would commit myself.
      I thought that he shouldn't bluff if i don't bet the turn.
      Afterwards i think b/f $6 and hoping for a free showdown is the best play.

      River: ($11,40) 9:club: (2 players)
      CO bets $11,4, Hero folds, CO gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      Final Pot: $11,40

      Hi,

      1) If 49/19 player would min-raise you on T43 board then very likely he has there tp and would never going to fold it, so I would make it 8$ on the flop to shove likely any turn besides Tx. On the turn you should defnitely c/r for value to 8$ to then shove any river besides Tx. He would not bet that small with boat or trips

      2) most players would c/r on the flop their flushdraws and play for stacks and for that reason I would b/c turn to 6$ and would shove on blank river. he would very likely call me down or shove himself with JTespecially with diamond. River fold on that card should be fine

      best regards,
