      BB: $14.17 (141.7 bb)
      UTG: $10 (100 bb) 20/18/3.0/6.3/44/91 Agg Freq 30%
      Hero (MP): $11.96 (119.6 bb) 13/11/7.0/7.4/17/79
      CO: $11.62 (116.2 bb)
      BTN: $7.17 (71.7 bb)
      SB: $13.25 (132.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with 5 5
      UTG raises to $0.30, Hero calls $0.30, CO folds, BTN calls $0.30, 2 folds

      Flop: ($1.05) A 5 2 (3 players)
      UTG bets $0.75, Hero calls $0.75, BTN folds

      Turn: ($2.55) 2 (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      Should I bet here? He could have checked with a flush draw that will call my turn bet. I checked thinking I'll give him a chance to bluff the river else I'll bet the river but I think this way I miss value from draws.

      River: ($2.55) K (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $2, UTG calls $2

      What is he's went to SD value? If big, bet 3 streets for sure! Because if he has an ace there, he could call turn, but fold river, if diamond comes (this time I guess he had some diamond there?).

      Anyway, this depends so much on your opponent. Hard to give the best line. Slowplaying could be ok sometimes, sometimes not.

      Hello maheepsangari,

      Raise the flop right away, if he has the Ace he is going to pay you and if not then he wont pay you much anyways. :)

      Though otherwise bet the turn & ship the river. :P

      Best Regards.

      Well, try to always think this way: that if he has a FD he pays you with draw, if he has an Ace he pays you cause he might think we have a FD. :) If he doesn't have a hand he wont pay you. :f_biggrin:
