      Final Board: 9 A 4 Q 5
      Hero showed A 8 and lost (-$6.10 net)
      BTN showed T A and won $11.88 ($5.78 net)


      I think the key piece of info I missed here was villain cbets into two players on flop.

      Preflop I think a squeeze might be better but I'm not sure?

      On flop as I said I dont think BTN is folding to my check/raise and I dont see any hands I get value from.

      On the turn I pick up the nut flush draw. Is my bet on the turn ok?

      Hey Kevin,

      Preflop: Even though it may look thin I prefer to 3-bet here and isolate the fish (SB) so we can play IP with him, preferably HU.

      Postflop: Flop is definitely overplayed and we even have to fold the hand to any action. Not much better, if anything, folds there and very little worse calls (some FDs).

      If he were to ship the turn what would you do, considering that we have less than 4 behind us? Answer should be pretty simple :)

      But, the reason I even ask that is because our bet size doesn't make that much sense given the stack sizes. So if you look at it again how would you play the turn?

      If he ships the turn I have to call right?

      Should I bet like 2.50 instead so that I can fold to an all-in?

      Once we raise the flop and that turn comes down we can't really bet fold.

      So either bet small to induce, shove or Ck/call. When would you choose either of these actions?

      I would be small to induce against aggressive player.

      Shove against tight player.

      Ck/call when receiving required odds

      Both bet small and ck/call could also be against players that are aggro and float your flop raise light. However these "floaters" are rare at the lower limits unless they are fishy.
