      SB: $7.32 - VPIP: 45, PFR: 23, 3B: 3, AF: 2,6, Hands: 146
      Hero (BB): $12.72 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 19, 3B: 5, AF: 4,7, Hands: 70491
      UTG: $20.84 - VPIP: 15, PFR: 10, 3B: 7, AF: 0,8, Hands: 79
      CO: $5.66 - VPIP: 10, PFR: 7, 3B: 4, AF: 3,5, Hands: 262
      BTN: $8.14 - VPIP: 34, PFR: 5, 3B: 0, AF: 4,0, Hands: 65

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BB with 8 :spade: 9 :spade:
      3 folds, SB calls $0.05, Hero raises to $0.40, SB calls $0.30

      Flop: ($0.80) 6 :club: 5 :club: K :club: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.10, Hero raises to $0.60, SB calls $0.50

      Turn: ($2.00) 9 :diamond: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.20, SB folds

      I don't like my flop raise as I get called way too often + my backdoor equity = not all that great. I mean, with an OESD it would make sense but here rather not. Although I would imagine that we are still cBetting this flop if villain checks to us? Or better not?

      As played: could maybe bet ~$1.35–$1.40 on the turn but I like betting vs FDs or even weaker pairs + FDs.

      Hi,

      here I like your isolation raise. With your equity I don´t mind your raise, although since he would b/c quite often you very often need to fire turn and maybe river barrels. So just calling is also fine. Betting turn for value and protection is better option than checking back. I would also bet around 1.2$

      best regards,

      Might the always more careful and cautious Veriz take a look at this flop raise? I am so afraid of spew that I want someone more passive to double-check.

      since veriz has 40+ hands to judge I think it takes a little too much time to looks over all questionable hands, so I mark this pot judged.

      Your question about flop raise:
      - it depends all if you were c-bet or not that board, if you would mostly c-bet then I would consider min-bet as check and would still raise, if not then you can also call and try to hit one of your outs.
