      Party, $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 9 Players

      SB: $7.25 (29 bb)
      Hero (BB): $26.05 (104.2 bb)
      MP2: $8.25 (33 bb)
      UTG+1: $25 (100 bb)
      MP3: $9.65 (38.6 bb)
      MP1: $45.74 (183 bb)
      UTG+2: $8.52 (34.1 bb)
      CO: $26.66 (106.6 bb) <20 hands
      BTN: $25 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A K
      5 folds, CO raises to $0.63, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1.01, CO calls $0.38

      Flop: ($2.12) 2 3 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      Turn: ($2.12) Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.51, CO folds

      Very strange open raise size, then the player just goes away.
      I bet the turn thinking that if he's not going to bet, I might as well, and a Q is as good a scare card as any.

      $2.12 pot ($0.10 rake)
      Final Board: 2 3 8 Q
      Hero mucked A K and won $2.02 ($1.01 net)
      CO mucked and lost (-$1.01 net)

      I assume that min3b was missclick. I cbet this board probably 100% of time, just to take dead money, its not very coordinated and connected with lot of hands.

      It depends on the villain, but on the flop I would decide whether I give up or just barrel off, as it would be terrible to just bet flop and give up.
      Im more inclined to barrel in this hand, cause villain is calling all his opening range to your min3bet so he's range is very wide and weak on the flop.

      Hello VorpalF2F,

      Preflop: 3be it of course bigger. :P
      Postflop: Either we are planning to CB & most likely 2nd barrel as said above or just Check/Fold it. Though the Queen might be still a good scare-card to use, so betting is fine.

      Best Regards.
