      I hit a flush, but the worst possible flush. Should I have bet/fold the river? Or check/call? I can't see worse hands calling or better hands folding, but maybe worse hands could have tried to bluff?

      IPoker, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      CO: $2.13 (21.3 bb)
      BTN: $10 (100 bb)
      SB: $10.35 (103.5 bb)
      BB: $16.79 (167.9 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $10.26 (102.6 bb)
      MP: $12.74 (127.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with 3 3
      Hero raises to $0.30, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.30, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.75) 6 9 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.60, BTN calls $0.60

      Turn: ($1.95) A (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.46, BTN calls $1.46

      River: ($4.87) 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Results:
      $4.87 pot ($0.32 rake)
      Final Board: 6 9 5 A 2
      BTN showed 9 9 and lost (-$2.36 net)
      Hero mucked 3 3 and won $4.55 ($2.19 net)

      Hi Ejeckt,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: This is an example of a flop where we can actually ck/fold on the flop.

      As played check/folding river is fine. I can't see many worse betting there (if any) and you are right, we can't bet for value or as a bluff.

      Hi Bogdan,

      Could you elaborate a bit on why this board is bad and warrants a ck/fold? Thank you :)

      Sure thing.

      First, our hand is terrible and we have little equity in the pot. Second, we are OOP.

      And third, the board is connected in the middle. While not many broadways connect most pairs are doing ok and there are quite a few hands with flush or backdoors that won't fold. So cbetting here will usually get us called or raised often and we can't continue that much given our hand.

      For example what do you do on a T, J, 4, 7, etc.

      Appreciate it, thanks.

      What kind of board would be favorable for us to cbet with? Besides one that has a 3 on it, or 245, of course? Or is 33 just one of those hands you give up OOP if you don't hit well on the flop?

      Boards that hit our perceived range and don't hit our opponent as much, or we boards that we don't expect to get floated very light.

      So Axx, Kxx, etc.
