      Turn: ($0.82, 2 players) Q:club:
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.50, Hero raises to $1.28, fold


      Preflop: I usually just call on blinds with decend hands like that, because I don't want to isolate on better range and prefer to play vs his wide button range. My mistake was that I did not looke at notes. Had I known that he had been able to call oop with JTo, I would have 3bet pre. Is that right?

      Flop: I check and allow him to bet, std. Did not see the point to x/r here.

      T: My hand got better and I don't know - should I have lead here? His betsizing on flop suggested that he would continue on the turn. That is why I checked. His bet was pretty small and board startet to be wet, some broadways added do flushdraw, so I decided to raise.
      Isn't that to strong looking line?

      Thanks in advance! :s_grin:

      Hello niceblack,

      Preflop: Everything is possible, it's always "depends".
      Postflop: Don't like the idea of Check/Raising, with it you just make a lot worse to fold and better continue mainly. Therefore rather donk it out. Nor of course the Check/Raise size ain't the best, with it you giving decent odds to call with draw.

      Best Regards.
