      BB ($11.28) 113bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.15, 4 players) cozacu is SB A:spade: 5:heart:
      2 folds, cozacu raises to $0.30, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: Q:club: 8:heart: 6:club: ($0.50, 2 players)
      cozacu bets $0.37, BB calls $0.37

      Turn: 10:heart: ($1.24, 2 players)
      cozacu bets $0.80, BB calls $0.80

      River: 9:club: ($2.84, 2 players)
      cozacu bets $2, BB calls $2

      Final Pot: $6.84

      This was probably a waste.

      I wanted to steal from Sb.

      FLop= I try to rep a Q

      Turn= continue the story

      River= I got the ilussion that I can get him of a Q, I`m reping here QJ,KJ or a flush. I thought he`ll find it dificult to make a call here without at least a J. I could easly have QJ,KJ, or a flush in case I second barreld the turn with a FD + GS.

      How bad was this overall and why?

      Hey Cozacu,

      You may actually get this guy to fold a Q. However it's only part of his range. His flop calling range also includes things like flush-draws, gutshots etc.

      It's usually unreasonable to expect most opponents at these stakes to fold a draw to a double barrel, so you don't have much fold equity on the turn. Turn also completes 79s.

      River completes flush and 4-to-straight. And villain can have Jx hands, TJ/9J etc especially if they also have hearts.

      From your perspective there is rarely any need to 3barrel at these stakes without equity. There is actually no need to ever 3barrel as a bluff to beat these stakes - it might be fine in some circumstances but I just would not bother without equity.

      So, I agree that you might fold a Qx. But the fact that villain has many other hands in his range he is not folding, and the fact that you have so little pot equity make this a bad 3barrel imo. C/f is actually fine.
