      1 fold, MP raises to $0.06, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.18, MP calls $0.12

      Flop: ($0.37) 4 :heart: 7 :heart: 6 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.28, MP calls $0.28

      Turn: ($0.93) Q :heart: (2 players)
      Hero?

      I have no idea why I 3bet preflop. Maybe to take initiative, and get it with a Cbet.

      Hey Imimba,

      You need to post your hands into the relevant Sub-Forums, which in your case is Hand Evaluations up to No Limit 0.05/0.10


      I'll move all of your threads over for you, remember for next time eh? :P

      Just call preflop.

      As played, flop is fine. Just check the turn and hope to get to the river cheaply.

      Just flat pre. Then take donk or x/r line depending on opponent.

      Hello Imimba1,

      Preflop: Why do you 3bet here??? If you don't know then just basically don't 3bet and just Call. :)

      As played
      Postflop: Well, the guy could still have some worse PPs in his range even and maybe just pure floats. Therefore just Bet the turn as well whilst might even protect your holdings from FD.

      Best Regards.

      The 3bet could be a semibluff, couldnt it?
      We can't just 3bet with AA-AK.

      Or the problem is that MP is kind of unknown, so it's futile to be deceptive?

      Balancing on these levels (NL2) isn't necessary, but if you played like NL10+ I guess your 3-bet makes more sense.

      Of course, it's hard to read that you have hit set on that board, so it could even be a profitable move, IF your opponents are capable of folding.

      MP seems like a station, so he could have called your 3-bet with 2 hearts, so be careful. You could try to C/C turn and river, if the bet-size is good.

      Read what CPallo wrote, why would you ever need to balance on NL2? I'd even say for NL50 you don't really need that much balancing, real adjustments start from NL100+ and you are worried about NL2...
