      Hero posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.07) Hero has 9:club: A:club:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.15, BB calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.30, 2 players) Q:diamond: 4:spade: 2:club:

      Hero checks, BB bets $0.35, fold


      Pre: Normal steal.

      F: I don't know whether I should've cbet this board or not, cause I think that I will not get any better hand to fold on this dry board.

      T: I hit my 9, which is not so bad, I think vs his betting range on this flop, which is in my opinion pretty wide? Yet, I'm not sure.

      R: Hard decision for me, whether to play ABC and to not look for difficult spots or to call thinking, that he can bet anything with this sizing.


      Thanks in advance for opinion!

      PS Had I made any grammar mistakes, tell me about that too, pls :)

      You should cbet that flop, your opponent would have to fold with any trash they possibly could have. Now you just donate the pot for him.

      But as played, if you call turn, you should also call river, because that card is practically a brick, it doesn't improve neither one of your hand.

      Hello niceblack,

      You could easily CB the flop whilst you have decent fold equity there and even if you not you can always continue with 2nd barreling (decent backdoor equity). Though as played I don't see really myself folding there cause he may also have enough of bluffs which bets the river while sees weakness in your Check.

      Best Regards.
