      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has K:spade: 5:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to 2 BB, fold, BB calls 1 BB

      Flop: (4.5 BB, 2 players) J:diamond: A:spade: 6:club:
      BB checks, Hero bets 2 BB, BB calls 2 BB

      Turn: (8.5 BB, 2 players) Q:spade:
      BB bets 3 BB, Hero calls 3 BB

      River: (14.5 BB, 2 players) Q:heart:
      BB checks, Hero checks

      I raised to try and steal.

      He called. I cbet to try and take down the pot and he called. I had no draw really so I thought the cbet might be the best move. Maybe a check would be better here as I get a free card that way?

      The queen of spades hits on the turn so now I have a flush draw and a straight draw. I'm disappointed to see his bet but since it's relatively small I called. Should I have folded?

      Looking at the hand now I need to bet 6 cents into a pot of .23 which is about 25% or 4 to 1. I have 9 outs for the flush draw and 3 outs for the straight which is 12 outs. This give me a 24% chance of hitting what should be a winning card or... 4 to 1. So is the call ok then?

      Hi Edukator,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think that we should make it at least 3 BB on this flop. Cbet on this board is perfectly fine. We have a backdoor flush and straight draw plus our board hits our perceived range so we should see a lot of folds. The only thing we should change is the bet size.

      As played, given his stack size, I agree with the call. If we raise we have to go with the hand often.

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