      More betsizing issues I guess. I bet really low on the turn hoping he'll call or even raise. He calls, but he folds to nearly pot size to get him all in on the river. Better to even out the bets a bit more? Maybe 40-50c on the turn and shove river?

      Party, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 9 Players

      CO: $1.99 (99.5 bb)
      UTG+2: $2 (100 bb)
      Hero (MP3): $2.02 (101 bb)
      MP2: $2 (100 bb)
      UTG+1: $0.96 (48 bb)
      BTN: $2.11 (105.5 bb)
      SB: $4.58 (229 bb)
      MP1: $1.56 (78 bb)
      BB: $2.32 (116 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with Q Q
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, CO folds, BTN calls $0.08, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.19) 3 9 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.09, Hero raises to $0.30, BTN calls $0.21

      Turn: ($0.79) Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.32, BTN calls $0.32

      River: ($1.43) 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.32 and is all-in, BTN folds

      $1.43 pot ($0.07 rake)
      Final Board: 3 9 8 Q 6
      Hero mucked Q Q and won $1.36 ($0.66 net)
      BTN mucked and lost (-$0.70 net)

      Hi Knyght,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: First, why are we going for a ck/raise? Are we assuming villain will bet often here?

      Bet/size for the raise given his bet is fine.

      Turn: We can definitely bet bigger against his entire range. 9x, TT, JJ , FDs can call a bigger bet (TJ completed here and no beats us but we still have equity).

      By betting bigger on the turn, like you suggested, then the river bet becomes a bet between 1/2 and 2/3 pot instead of almost full pot.
