      Preflop: Hero is BTN with K A
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.12, SB calls $0.10, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.28) 3 Q A (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.10, SB calls $0.10

      Turn: ($0.48) 5 (2 players)

      I know I was leading on the proflop and the flop, but I worried about the Q card on the flop. What would you guys do?

      Hi.

      Just bet larger. He has only 25BB and he can have so many worse AX hands. If he has AQ you cannot get away from your hand for sure. Just bet 14 on Flop and bet Turn shove River.

      What about if he had QQ or AA? Would he bet larger and aggressively on the flop and on the turn instead of checking? It was the first time I met him on the table, so I don't know him. I thought he was slowplaying.
