      CO: $2.81 - VPIP: 67, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 1,5, Hands: 9

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is BTN with A :heart: K :spade:
      1 fold, MP calls $0.05, CO calls $0.05, Hero raises to $0.30, 2 folds, MP calls $0.25, CO calls $0.25

      Flop: ($0.97) Q :diamond: 2 :spade: J :spade: (3 players)
      MP checks, CO checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($0.97) T :heart: (3 players)
      MP bets $0.25, CO folds, Hero?

      He clearly has a weak hand. Should we let him bet again on the river?

      I would probably make between $1 and pot sized raise here because I think villain's small bet is one of two things.
      1) a monster trying to induce
      2) (more likely) a draw trying to see a cheap River

      In case 2 if we just call now and villain misses river then he only invests further with a river bluff. If we raise now he might bet/call with his draw and we therefore extract more value, and increase the size of the pot to make a larger river value bet. If he is trying to induce with 2pr+ then he will likely 3b/broke flop which is obviously always a bonus.

      I would definitely not just call. Life would suck if we chopped on the river or lost to a flush. Plus we miss a lot of value anyways.

      Hi,

      I would also prefer raising turn, since even if he has there weak hand, he would not really out too much money in the pot, but he may easily b/c turn if you raise 0.8$.

      best regards,

      So all in all, we raise for value?

      We dont want to see any A, K (it could chop the board), he MAY have a FD, and if he slowplayed a monster, we get it in right here.
      Anything more to add?

      Hello Imimba1,

      Yes, we are raising for value on the turn and also protection from FDs which could be possible. :) Also prepare to Bet bigger on the river.

      Best Regards.

      Yeah, I agree with both of you, that raising is the best.
      0.8$-1.8$ seem nice to me. Kaitz has a point: he probably has a weak hand, so we cant raise too much.

      What you you think Veriz?

      I'd head towards bigger one, so something around I'd be able to more easily get value on the river. :P Might even able to ship it.
