      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BTN with 8 :heart: 7 :club:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.25, 1 fold, BB calls $0.15

      Flop: ($0.55) A :club: 9 :club: J :heart: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.40, BB calls $0.40

      Turn: ($1.35) Q :diamond: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($1.35) 3 :spade: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      1) Is this hand so weak that in order to open it from this position I should be making it 2BBs?
      2) Since villain can have broadways/some Ax hands in his range, does it make sense to cBet this flop in the first place?

      Hi,

      1) Is this hand so weak that in order to open it from this position I should be making it 2BBs?
      -never mix up your bet sizes according strength of your hand- if you make 2x 87o and would 4x AK/AA, then good players would 3-bet 100% of their hands against your 2x opens. Also 2x would be called a lot more on the BB/SB than 2.5 or 3x open.

      2) Since villain can have broadways/some Ax hands in his range, does it make sense to cBet this flop in the first place?
      - sometimes you can mix it up and check behind to then either go delayed c-bet on the turn. I would c-bet your spot, since you have gutshot and all the worse pp-s would going to c/f.

      Since he did not bet river I think it is great spot to overbet 1.6$ or 2$. he most likely has there marginal hand and should always fold to our overbet.

      best regards,
