      Interested fish hoping to comment ...

      As your Cbet is so weak (small) villain could quite easily be calling with Ax combo's and play the Turn the same. In which case I think there are defo arguments for 3bet/getting it in on the Turn as @NL10 he might pay you off with A10+

      Flatting the Turn raise OOP seems a little weak, what is your plan if a spade falls on the River. c/f ? c/c? Presumably not donk lead again. In which case you are missing your best opportunity to get more value in the pot.

      I think villain would play a flopped set the same. I think the only hands you need worry about are A2,A3,A9,22,33,99.

      I have a bad habit of assuming that all players that limp call are weak and happy to pay off light and so often over do it but I think I would get it in on the Turn and hope to be paid by weaker Ax hands. If they fold then you are defending vs FD and combo draws.

      All this is with no info on villain so is pretty general.

      Might be widely innaccurate but just my 5cence.


      ps: If villain checked behind with 2pair or a set then he is missing loads of value and you have done well to lose the minimum.

      Thats so Fing sick.
      Hope you took a note.

      Very interested to see what the judges have to say about this one.

      Myself and a few others are in the process of setting up an NL10 study group to help us through the micros. PM me if you're interested.

      Hello ekisz,

      Flop: As said above that your CB size doesn't make sense at all, you are rather showing weakness with it and you ain't going to see that many folds there. Instead pick a bigger CB which will also gain you decent amount of fold equity.
      Turn: What's the point of calling? Do you think he is ever going to bluff the river? What's your plan if FD completes or what kind of rivers would you Call? Or you planning to Call the turn and fold river?

      Best Regards.
