      iPoker - $0.10 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      SB: $9.00
      BB: $3.76
      Hero (UTG): $12.44
      CO: $15.40
      BTN: $17.45

      SB posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has K:heart: K:spade:

      Hero raises to $0.30, CO calls $0.30, fold, fold, fold

      Flop: ($0.75, 2 players) Q:heart: 5:heart: 6:diamond:
      Hero bets $0.60, CO calls $0.60

      Turn: ($1.95, 2 players) 7:club:
      Hero bets $1.40, CO calls $1.40

      River: ($4.75, 2 players) 8:heart:
      Hero checks, CO bets $3.56, fold

      CO wins $4.44

      I think this is a pretty standard spot, but what about the bet sizing? Should I bet both the flop and the turn bigger?

      Hi Tino,

      Preflop: looks fine.

      Flop/turn: Cbet for value/protection is fine. Unless villain is a fish the best sizing is fine.

      River: We only beat a bluff now and it's hard to assume villain has anything that he can bluff with.

      Considering that there are many Qx hands still in his range I don't even mind a bet fold of 1.5-2. I can't see him bluffing us (turning Qx in bluff). It's a super thin bet because both straight and flush got there but he may call a small bet.
