      Hey,
      Party, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 7 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      SB: $17.77 (177.7 bb)
      CO: $9.63 (96.3 bb)
      Hero (MP3): $4.27 (42.7 bb)
      MP1: $9.99 (99.9 bb)
      MP2: $13.93 (139.3 bb)
      BB: $7.46 (74.6 bb) - VPIP: 13, PFR: 11, 3B: 5, AF: 1,3, Hands: 62
      BTN: $5.74 (57.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A T
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, 3 folds, BB calls $0.20
      This was his first coldcall during those 60 hands. I think there are pockets, AJ+ in his range, maybe few broadways.

      Flop: ($0.65) A 3 K (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks
      I don't think he is on flushdraw very often, maybe QJs, JTs at max. I'm checking back as a cbet would isolate me vs better hands.

      Turn: ($0.65) T (2 players)
      BB bets $0.31, Hero calls $0.31
      I would probably chase worse hands out by raising. I call, hopefully he will bet river too.

      River: ($1.27) 8 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.60, Hero raises to $1.80, BB folds
      Here, I want to go for thin value from Ax. My plan was raise/fold here as I don't think he will overplay worse hands. Should I maybe change my sizing, minraise or 2.5x ?

      Results:
      $2.47 pot ($0.12 rake)
      Final Board: A 3 K T 8
      Hero mucked A T and won $2.35 ($1.14 net)
      BB mucked and lost (-$1.21 net)

      Thanks

      When you think he is on a Flushdraw you MUST cbet, because you have the better Hand.
      Then bet the Turn again and the River.

      Your riversizing is ok, but 2.5 are OK too.

      Imo this tight player isn't on flushdraw very often. That's why I'm checking the flop as there aren't any weaker hands that could call at all. So is this line good?

      I don't like the Line. So much Turn cards are ugly and we have hard decisions on the Turn and only few Cards make it easier.

      I have a trouble understanding why cbet here. AJ, AQ won't fold but all pocket pairs will. So a cbet will isolate me against better hands. If I check back flop, he might bluff on turn & check river and we can go to showdown. Or I can bet for free showdown on turn if he checks again. I know it's NL10 but still I don't expect a tight player to check/call me two streets with KQ or 55. Also it was his first coldcall in 60 hands so I don't expect him to suddenly defend his blind with 45s or something like that so I don't even mind the flushdraw. I feel there are no bad cards on turn at all.

      So where am I leaking here?

      In my opinion he can have Flushdraws here more often than you think.
      Passive defends are often Broadway Kombos like KQ, KJ, KT, QJ ... often suited Combos.
      So I don't like any :diamond: or the T on the Turn, because he can have the Straight.
      And his AF isn't very high, so I don't think he will Bluff a lot. So it would be good to know how much he folds to cbets maybe he calls a lot ;)
