      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is BB with 3 :heart: A :heart:
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.50, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.25

      Flop: ($1.10) 2 :spade: 5 :heart: Q :club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      Turn: ($1.10) 5 :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.50, Hero calls $0.50

      River: ($2.10) 9 :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      On the turn I thought that I don't have to necessarily give up with my A high + 1 over + GS vs his small bet. I thought that I still may be ahead + have outs and it is OK to call.

      Really not sure about this decision though. But betting the turn myself doesn't seem that great either as I am not sure I have that much fold equity + better hands probably don't fold anyway.

      May it be check/folded vs this small bet?

      Hello Avatars91,

      Lead out the turn yourself! :) That's should be it, no need to go for hero-calls. We are folding to any bet on the river cause he ain't really bluffing there whilst he could have done that on the flop, ain't he?

      Best Regards.

      Probably should have done that.

      But just theoretically speaking – are we betting the turn because we have some equity that needs to be protected + we want to avoid him bluffing us out of the pot?

      The problem is that I don't think we are making better hands fold + the hand may be checked down anyway, since he may be passive (though we don't really know that for sure – might also be the reason why betting is better?).

      We have equity and we don't want to Call-down a Bet on the turn once he does Bet.
