      IPoker, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      BTN: $1.70 (85 bb)
      SB: $3.71 (185.5 bb)
      BB: $2.74 (137 bb)
      MP: $2 (100 bb)
      Hero (CO): $2.23 (111.5 bb)

      Villain is 19/14 with 3bet of 5%. He is a reg and was playing on 3 of my 4 tables.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 3 3
      MP folds, Hero raises to $0.06, 2 folds, BB calls $0.04

      Flop: ($0.13) 9 2 4 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.06, BB calls $0.06

      Turn: ($0.25) 3 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.10, BB calls $0.10

      River: ($0.45) K (2 players)
      BB bets $0.22, Hero raises to $1, BB folds

      This is why I've posted this, is my turn bet too small? Is my river raise too large, should I look to just call instead? Thoughts please.

      Results:
      $0.89 pot ($0.05 rake)
      Final Board: 9 2 4 3 K
      BB mucked and lost (-$0.44 net)
      Hero mucked 3 3 and won $0.84 ($0.40 net)

      Hi Sleep,

      Prefllop: looks fine

      Postflop: I would recommend a larger flop cbet, to about 8c and same on the turn. Nothing really changes there and you want to go for pure value.

      On the river villain is most likely block betting so your raise is too big. I'd make ~60c.

      As a side note, when you leave a reply, don't forget to hit the "advise judge to take another look" button.

      Thanks Bogdan. Agree with everything here, has really helped my game.

      - Just seen that button, yes. I will use that from now on in the future.
