      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has J:diamond: Q:diamond:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.07, fold, fold, BB calls $0.05
      20 hands, looks like reasonable player

      should i cbet at all, intending to take a free card, or do i just take the free card now? both possible?
      on his big checkraise looks like easy fold, i am in all likelyhood the underdog and my draw may even be dominated
      [edit: i also figured i should cbet potsize...]

      BB wins $0.31

      I like your c-bet since you can put pressure his middle strength hands, like A6s or 33 and make him fold better hands if you barrel most turns.
      Also you can b/c with flushdraw and overcards that spot, so betting isn't wrong+ you fold out all his better broadway hands (AJ, KQ, AT) and so on.

      I would b/c flop. He seems very strong and I doubt he would fold straight, two pair or set if diamond comes on the turn, so you have a lot implied pot odds to b/c flop being ip.

      Best regards,
