      Why do you cbet so small? Do you think you have any fold equity? I don't think so. If you had any made hand like AA, KK, AK, you would try to extract value here. Just bet something around 1/2 pot and try to get to showdown. As played you could call hoping to hit a gutshot, but you need to fold any non-T river.

      Remember your hand is trash postflop on that board..
      Since you're heads-up and on somewhat dry board you should cbet anyway from 1/2 to 3/4 as JohnDoe1313 said is fine..

      On the turn I would just check after and re-evaluate on the river..

      Seriously ramadas, do yourself a favor and don't play any more hands online until you fix that postflop betting leak, it's only costing you money..
      Here, I copied a text from an article to remind you!

      WHEN YOU BET

      Continuation bet:
      After we have raised pre-flop we can often continue betting on the flop as well. The main reason behind a continuation bet is to keep up the aggressive play and try to take the pot down right away. Even if we don't have a made hand on the flop we can turn our momentum into advantage by betting.
      :diamond: When against only one opponent and on a dry board, you should bet 1/2 pot-size as a continuation bet.
      :diamond: On a drawy board or against 2 opponents your continuation bet should be bigger - about 3/4 of the total amount of money in the pot.

      Value bet:
      We have a strong hand and want to get money in the pot. We want opponents with weaker hands to call and stay in the hand. When this is the case, we are betting for value. If an opponent bets, we raise that bet when playing for value.
      :diamond: With a good hand that you want to extract money from, you bet around 3/4 of the pot.
      :diamond: When you want to make a raise, you raise to 3 times of the bet of your opponent.

      Hope this helps! :f_thumbsup:

      I want to thank the above posters of helping you out Ramadas in terms of betsizing because minbetting is not the way to earn our money. In fact we lose money because we just give people the odds to suck out on us!

      so I would continuation bet around 26cents on the Flop to force him to fold

      Best regards,
      Gerv
