      Party, $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      MP: $53.80 (215.2 bb)
      CO: $37.62 (150.5 bb)
      SB: $22.49 (90 bb)
      UTG: $29.75 (119 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $44.24 (177 bb)
      BB: $16.28 (65.1 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with Q:heart: K:spade:
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.75, CO folds, Hero calls $0.75, SB calls $0.65, BB folds

      Flop: ($2.50) 3:spade: T:heart: Q:diamond: (3 players)
      SB checks, MP checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($2.50) 2:diamond: (3 players)
      SB checks, MP checks, Hero checks

      River: ($2.50) 8:club: (3 players)
      SB bets $1.19, MP folds, Hero calls $1.19

      Is the turn line mistake, to give another free card on board? MP is somehow aggressive with (48 hands) so I knew he will fold to any raise here, but wasn't sure for the SB (8 hands only).

      You are actually better off by 'pot controlling by betting'. Once you don't bet flop you let your opponent's choose their sizings on turn and river. If you bet turn, you will get value (main reason to bet) but also take control of pot action since most people will check to you again on turn and rivers so you can bet flop, bet turn and decide river whilst getting value and using your desired sizings, not letting other bet more or less than you want.
