      BTN: $5.23 (104.6 bb)
      Hero (SB): $11.80 (236 bb)
      BB: $13.62 (272.4 bb)
      MP: $3.83 (76.6 bb)
      CO: $10.16 (203.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q A
      MP folds, CO raises to $0.12, BTN calls $0.12, Hero raises to $0.40, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.28

      Flop: ($0.97) 7 2 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.60, BTN calls $0.60

      Turn: ($2.17) J (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $1.10, Hero folds

      $2.17 pot ($0.09 rake)
      Final Board: 7 2 5 J
      BTN mucked and won $2.08 ($1.08 net)
      Hero mucked Q A and lost (-$1 net)

      I donn't know why but in more then 70 percent cases when i have AQ,AK,KQ and try to 3 bet on board like 257 rianbow everybody calls, then i check turn on blank and opponent take a quite solid pot. Is better to CBet flop like K43 with AQ? Or Jxx,Qxx?Axx with KQ? I think when i have one big card here my CBet is much more efficient. Or is there any article about CBeting 3 bet pot? It's different than in raised pots?

      Maybe you should balance your gaming and do 2nd barrel? If people know, that you always bet only 1 street, when missed, then you should try to fire second one ;)

      Hello Tatarken,

      Preflop: 3bet it bigger whilst you also have a BTN who calls. Practically without having him in the pot you can make such a sizing.

      As played
      Postflop: In those spots you will very often face a lot of PPs, especially if he is tight. So therefore not the best idea even to CB here and instead just Check/Fold the flop. Doesn't really make sense to just CB once either whilst you will very often burn money in those spots.

      Best Regards.
