      Player2 wins $35.54 (net +$17.67)

      Player1 lost $0.25
      kymupa lost $7

      This was a hard spot for me. Opp is 24/20 40% fold to 3b. (5)

      Preflop I think 3betting is fine.

      What to do postflop? I think I played it fine but not really sure.
      I don't like checking the flop because I don't really want to c/c and c/f seems a bit too weak?

      On the turn I really don't see too much worse hands calling and I decided to c/f?

      Anything wrong?

      Hello kymupa,

      What's the point of Betting the flop and then Check/Folding blank turn? :P What do you expect him to be doing there, do you even see him Checking behind weaker holdings/draws?

      Best Regards.

      Well the turn isn't so blank since he can have 8x there.

      My reasoning to bet flop was that I have enough FE to make it profitable.

      So what line do you suggest?

      He wont have many 8x hands in 3bet pot, so it didn't change at all. My advice if you planning to fold the turn then Check/Fold flop right away or least Check it and reevaluate the bet sizes etc.
