      CO is a reg and BB is a fish, no other reads though.

      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.10(BB) Replayer
      SB ($1.96)
      BB ($4.71)
      Hero ($12.47)
      CO ($11.79)
      BTN ($6.03)

      Dealt to Hero J:heart: K:club:

      Hero raises to $0.30, CO calls $0.30, fold, fold, BB calls $0.20

      FLOP ($0.95) 3:club: 9:spade: K:spade:

      BB checks, Hero bets $0.50,

      I bet that small thinking that I should keep the pot small playing OOP against the reg with a marginal hand and because BB could call with a bunch of hands on this flop with such a small bet. Am I wrong here?

      Hi Acetbfish,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I would say that you are wrong. Your small bet loses you value in the long run and also invites more aggressive players to raise us. Afterall we bet half pot on a somewhat wet flop multiway - that looks like a weak hand.

      How would you react versus a raise?

      I guess I would have fold if the CO raises me and I would have called the raise and a potential turn bet if BB raises me. That was basically my plan fo the hand.

      To avoid any guessing games or inducing opponents we should bet larger.

      But really the larger bet is actually for pure value and the items mentioned above are just a byproduct/bonus effect.
