      Standard cbet and you fold to a raise, he's probably holding a pocket pair here, but even Ax beats you at the moment.

      Nice hand and good fold.C/r usually strong indicator of good hand.
      You should understand that your cbet with trash hand is pure bluff and bluff shouldn`t work always.Basic strategy says do cbet always against one opp if he checks to you or you first to act but when you gain more experience you can choose when not to make cbet for example agaist opp who is calling to much cbets,on very dangerous board (JT9 or suited) etc.In this particular situation your opp can have good hand like pp,set or only draw,air because he understands that on such low fop you can hit nothing.
      Good luck :)

      Hello again Oly0909 ,

      You did well, it's one of the sss things to do - sometimes you need to give up after cbet and this is one of these spots.

      Good luck on the tables!
