      Hey!

      I bet really small on the flop here to keep Ax in. What about the call of the AI on the turn?


      PokerStars - $0.02 NL ZOOM - Holdem - 9 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: $2.41
      Hero (SB): $1.53
      BB: $2.02
      UTG: $2.09
      UTG+1: $0.91
      UTG+2: $3.55
      MP: $4.71
      MP+1: $2.78
      CO: $2.42

      Hero posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has A:heart: Q:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, BTN calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.08, fold, BTN calls $0.06

      Flop: ($0.18, 2 players) 6:heart: T:spade: A:club:
      Hero bets $0.08, BTN raises to $0.20, Hero calls $0.12

      Turn: ($0.58, 2 players) 2:heart:
      Hero checks, BTN bets $2.13 and is all-in, Hero calls $1.25 and is all-in

      River: ($3.08, 2 players) 7:spade:


      Hero shows A:heart: Q:spade: (One Pair, Aces) (Pre 66%, Flop 27%, Turn 18%)
      BTN shows T:diamond: 6:club: (Two Pair, Tens and Sixes) (Pre 34%, Flop 73%, Turn 82%)
      BTN wins $2.97


      P.S. In case your wondering, I didn't bust out of NL5 :f_biggrin: ! Just that I've been break even for a while, so I thought I could work on my game on NL2, and work up from there.

      Hey MoneyDearest,

      I don't really like the thinking of ''betting small to keep it in''. Any Ace is going to call on your cBet anyways so if you can make it big or small, we ofcourse prefer a big bet since that is equivalent of more profit

      As played on the Turn , I think you can only call if you think he has enough bluffs and/or worse Ax in his range doing this

      Best regards,
      Gerv
