      iPoker - $0.10 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: $10.00
      Hero (SB): $14.97
      BB: $17.12
      UTG: $3.00
      MP: $3.00
      CO: $9.80

      Hero posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10, MP posts DB $0.10

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.25) Hero has A:club: A:spade:

      UTG calls $0.10, MP checks, CO raises to $0.40, fold, Hero raises to $1.40, fold, fold, fold, CO calls $1.00

      Flop: ($3.10, 2 players) Q:heart: 2:diamond: 9:diamond:
      Hero bets $2.40, CO calls $2.40

      Turn: ($7.90, 2 players) 7:spade:
      Hero bets $11.17, fold


      Hero wins $7.38


      CO was a pretty bad player. It seems pretty standard, but I want to know if there is any merit at all to checking the turn against an aggressive player and letting him bluff? Or should I maybe not have shoved the turn, but bet smaller?

      I just feel like I missed some value here...

      Hi Tino,

      Preflop: looks good although we can make it bigger since our assumption is that he is a bad/fishy player.

      Flop: I like our larger cbet on this board. Lot's of worse can call so we need to get value and protect our hand.

      However, since we are looking to get the money in on two streets we should look at making the cbet on the flop even larger so our turn bet doesn't seem to be such an overbet.

      For example if we bet $2.9 on the flop the pot would be $8.90 on the turn and villain would only have $5.50 which is almost 50% of the pot.
