      Hero (BB): $20.38 (101.9 bb)
      UTG: $2.94 (14.7 bb)
      MP: $9.12 (45.6 bb)
      CO: $20 (100 bb)
      BTN: $24.06 (120.3 bb)
      SB: $10.91 (54.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q:spade: Q:club:
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.60, 2 folds, SB raises to $1.70, Hero raises to $4.50, MP folds, SB calls $2.80

      Flop: ($9.60) 3:club: K:spade: 4:heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $7.10, SB folds

      I was afraid of Aces on the T that's why I bet but I think it wasn't the best gameplan because if he has an ace there is only 3 aces left => ~8% turns are with ace and he still can make something stupid after my xb on this Kxx board and he only call my bet wtih kings

      Hi Ilidek,

      Preflop: looks fine, your 4-bet size is fine

      Postflop: Shipping the flop is hardly the best play there. You are giving him a very easy way to play against us.

      We want him making mistakes with a bigger part of his range and an A is very rarely hitting turn.

      So I'd bet $3 and go from there.

      So I shouldn't xb but bet 3$ to induce bluffs, right?

      You don't want to only induce bluffs but also lighter calls.

      Checking back is fine as well but we can't fold our hand. So we would check to let him bluff but without knowing his tendencies I prefer the smaller bet 2.5-3.
