      MP showed A T and won $4.20 ($2.12 net)

      Villian 72/36 40 hands 3bet 12.5

      Villain was marked as a fish

      Flop: Flop im betting for value vs worse Kx, FDs,SDs.

      Turn:Was planning on folding turn to a bigger bet, since FD came in, some SDs. When villian bets so small, can i fold here? My thinking is that he would bet bigger with 34/89 to protect against the flush. I would usually expect made flushes to bet bigger for value, so im thinking it mainly looks like worse Kx making a scared bet.

      River: Should i fold river to such a small bet? I would assume made flushes to bet bigger, straights again to bet bigger, so im thinking its worse Kx, or some sort of random AhX.

      Hi Keoghh,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: First, I would not fold either to these bets and I agree that we should expect made hands to bet bigger.

      However, i think that starting to ck/call on that turn versus such a huge range is a mistake. I rather bet/fold the turn than ck/call. Villain can still call worse hands like Kx, pairs + heart, OESDs, etc.
