      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A, T.
      MP2 calls $0.05, MP3 calls $0.05, CO folds, BU calls $0.05, SB folds, Hero raises to $0.40, MP2 calls $0.35, MP3 calls $0.35, BU folds.

      Flop: ($1.27) 3, T, A (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.91, MP2 calls $0.91, MP3 folds.

      Turn: ($3.09) A (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.22, MP2 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $3.09.

      Would it be better to bet smaller or even check the turn here and hope villain bets, or should I just keep betting? Villain is unknown (first hand)

      If villain is typically an aggressive player it would be wise to check the turn as at this stage you are way ahead, and MP2 may recognise your weakness due to your contibet which may induce a bluff.

      Yet a cold call on the flop could mean Ax or the club draw.

      Now being way ahead on the turn and inducing a bluff or semi-bluff on the turn, which you would call for value or 3bet as you probably won't get paid on the river is ok.

      Yet my gut feel is that villain may check.

      If this is the case and a club hits the river, you should bet, get raised then you hall all-in, this is the most profitable way to play the hand.

      That $2.22 dollar bet is way too big, especially out of position.

      Hello Ickki,

      Don't Bet that huge on the turn, you have the nuts. :P You want to get value from worse, I'd make really small bet maybe like even $1 and ship the river.

      Best Regards.
