      Do you have stats on the villain? I think the 3bet is okay here, especially if he steals a lot and will fold to 3bets. Though I'd rather 3bet if it was suited. You might not want to pay too much attention since I also suck.

      I think cbetting a ridiculously draw-heavy board with gutshot+overcards isn't a good idea. I'd probably check/fold this or check/call if villain's bet is small and gives us good odds. If he donks the flop small I think(?) you'd get good implied odds.

      Villain's checking behind on the turn is pretty weak and since you hit top pair/top kicker I think the bet here is fine... And this bet would be been lower if you you had not bet the flop.

      thanks for the input, any comments are appreciated :f_biggrin:

      now i guess i can post my own comments and answer yours:

      well 45 hands is nothing for fold steal to 3b stat :f_frown: but i "felt" that he didn't like to fold to 3b, and could call with dominated aces
      anyway i think preflop is okay. huge mistakes start on the flop

      i actually have an OESD (this is okay) and a 1 card backdoorflush! (this sucks, Q high is not good enough for 4 board)
      anyway the size is just plain wtf - i would never (or at least i am not supposed to) cbet this board that betsize in any circumstance, maybe only with K:sQ and even then i wouldn't be sure... fair sizing would be some $0.8 at least
      i can only guess i expected him to fold if he didn't have any part of the board or was into some set mining venture, but else just about everything hits this board somehow.
      check/call something reasonable as you said was probably better

      by checking i have absolutely no idea on what's going on. just horrible, but i wonder how reasonable is a 2nd barrel, looks way too commital

      i beat absolutely nothing! any 8, any K beats me, also he could easily have twopair which i doubt he is folding for that betsizing
      so river bet is a failure as well, i can only hope that he has nothing (and folds) or levels himself into some kind of AJ call, but i doubt he ever has AJ in this action

      Hello Tomaloc,

      Flop: Not a good flop to CB there, there are too many hands which continue and hardly hits his 3bet-calling range. If you plan to CB the flop then you should also be planning to 2nd barrel a lot of turn cards, especially when you get extra equity.

      As played
      Turn: You have to 2nd barrel it, what do you plan to do here? Check/Call? Which would be really bad. Made already a mistake by CBetting the flop and while you get some extra equity you should rather 2nd barrel and might even make some PPs/pairs to fold.

      As played
      River: Easy Check/Fold, I can't really see what worse pays you, you are practically turning your hand into bluff which tries to make something like 2pairs to fold.

      Best Regards.
