      Hero lost $7.50

      Villain: 23/18 3bet: 5.9 - 59 hands

      What about my flop betsizing, thoughts to this?

      As for check behind turn, I reasoned like this: I have no showdown value, so why bet again because the only thing it would achieve would be a free check down on the river which is something I don't want. Rather check, look like I was bluffing and get my free card and go over the top on the river which would increase my implified odds?

      Argument for Barreling, it will fold out weak queens and a few nines.

      Hello rdmnick,

      Flop: Our raise is pretty standard here as long we also played the hand passively preflop. With draws I'd play more aggressively unless I have some other information on him, although I'd make it a bit bigger cause I would do the same with my strong hands, ~$7 at least.

      As played
      Turn: Not much to comment, I doubt that we have much fold equity anymore and also that was the purpose of the raise on the flop to gain us even a free card if we want it.
      River: Not much to comment.

      Best Regards.
