      SB posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has 8:spade: Q:club:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.30, fold, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.65, 2 players) 6:club: 4:club: T:club:
      BB checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($0.65, 2 players) J:spade:
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.40, BB calls $0.40

      River: ($1.45, 2 players) 7:club:
      BB bets $1.38, fold

      BB wins $1.38

      I did no the cbet flop because he was midstack and i would commit myself with a draw.

      On the turn he checked to me again showing disinterest for the pot and since i picked a gutter i decide to bet.

      My thinking at first sight was that when he bets full pot he has a very good flush. Then ofcourse i thought that he can bluff me or have a J high flush.

      But then i concluded that it is not that possible that he would float me out of position and that if he had the Jhigh flush now he would have bet the turn having Top pair and a Flush draw especially since i checked back flop.

      So I folded my Qhigh flush.

      Hi Deo,

      Preflop: Do we know anything about either villain?

      Given their stack size our Q8o open may be a bit loose.

      If they fold a lot pre or postflop then it's not that bad.

      Postflop: We can also cbet this flop with our hand. Without a big club or pair he will not call and we can pick up this pot often.

      As played I would also fold the river. I doubt that he calls turn just to bluff the river. I'd call there only with information on villain which we don't appear to have any.
