      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      CO:
      $1.01
      BU:

      MP2:
      $2.80
      MP3:
      $1.64


      Preflop: Hero is BB with A, A.
      MP1 folds, MP2 raises to $0.04, 2 folds, BU calls $0.04, SB folds, Hero raises to $0.20, MP2 folds, BU calls $0.16.

      Flop: ($0.45) 2, 3, K (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.32, BU calls $0.32.

      Turn: ($1.09) 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.56, BU calls $0.56.

      River: ($2.21) 3 (2 players)
      Hero raises to $0.95, BU folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.21.

      Is it OK to bet small on the turn? I could get it in without overbetting the river anyway, and I could lure him into calling a bit wider.

      Just bet 2/3 on the turn, you get max value from some weird draws there.

      I like your river-bet sizing, it could make your opponent call w some weak Kx. By checking the river you have had a chance to make your opponent bluff there, so it should be considered there, too. Some blockerbet (1/3, 1/5) could also work there.

      WP anyway.

      You could bet turn higher, but well played anyway.

      CPallo, we have to remember that it is nl2, there is no place for bluff inducing or something like that. Value bets all day :)

      Yeh, but against a maniac or some weak tag who might had read an article about a thing called bluff you can always hope for that! :p

      Hi,

      bet/bet/shove would be standard play postflop. Since board is so dry I like your half pot bet to induce shoves and get calls from hands that would very likely folded to 2/3 bet. I think TT might easily call 0.56$ but would fold to 0.8$ and higher bet

      best regards,
