      Prima, $0.02/$0.04 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      MP: $7.67 (191.8 bb)
      Hero (CO): $6.66 (166.5 bb)
      BTN: $4 (100 bb)
      SB: $10.32 (258 bb)
      BB: $4.12 (103 bb)
      UTG: $12.55 (313.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K A
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.12, Hero raises to $0.36, 3 folds, MP raises to $0.96, Hero calls $0.60

      Flop: ($1.98) 5 7 A (2 players)
      MP bets $0.98, Hero calls $0.98

      Turn: ($3.94) Q (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero bets $2, MP folds

      Questios are:
      :spade: I should 3bet bigger preflop, right?
      :spade: Whats about calling 4bet here? Is it good or i should choose other options? 5bet jaming might be overplaying, right?
      :spade: Whats about my bet sizing on turn? Good?

      I guess he had pocket cowboys? ?(

      Hi.

      I don't think you are getting called on the Turn AND the River. So you should probably check Turn and bet the River.

      What worse hands could really call you twice here, especially when the flush completed, and you lose to AQ/QQ/AA?

      If the turn was the 2 of clubs, I think you should just bet turn and bet river.

      I think 3betting slightly larger is good, maybe 40-45 cents
      I cannot answer this question with much certainty without any reads. but calling with AKs is never going to be a huge mistake unless MP is an ultra nit. At NL4, shoving here is suicidal and our options are between calling or folding

      Well, not many hands can call. Only if he god K of diamonds he might try to hit his flush.
      I dont see people 4beting with AQ at this limit. Happens quite rarely. And i guess he would barrel with nuts here.

      Thanks.

      I agree that we rarely see AQ at this limit. But you need to answer the question

      What worse hands are calling you BOTH on the Turn and River?
      Honestly I can hardly think of anything. I'm not even sure if there are worse hands which will call one more bet, so I'll just check Turn and bet River.
