      Hand afspelen

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:

      CO:
      $14.92
      BU:
      $10.00
      SB (Hero):
      $10.05


      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q, A.
      2 folds, BU raises to $0.30, Hero raises to $0.90, BB folds, BU calls $0.60.

      Flop: ($1.9) Q, Q, 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU checks.

      Turn: ($1.9) 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.90, BU calls $0.90.

      River: ($3.7) 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.80, BU raises to $3.80, Hero ??.

      Is my flopplay correct? I checked hoping he would bet, so I could raise. But is betting better?

      Hi jonkie,

      Looks like you posted in the wrong forum.

      I would 3-bet this larger preflop OOP, at least 10 BB.

      As played I think you should cbet this dry flop and expect to get called by pairs, worse Qx and even A high.

      I don't think we should ck/raise if he bets, just check call

      As played the river is at least a call but he may raise worse Qx thinking that our range is weak (we checked flop) so shoving is an option too.

      Tx for th answer, heard that comment about making a 3bet bigger oop somewhere else too about another situation i had in the BB. So I will implement that. Thank you!!
