      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has A:spade: Q:heart:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to 3 BB, fold, BB calls 2 BB

      Flop: (6.5 BB, 2 players) 9:heart: 6:heart: K:diamond:
      BB checks, Hero bets 3.5 BB, BB calls 3.5 BB

      Turn: (13.5 BB, 2 players) A:heart:
      BB bets 8 BB, Hero calls 8 BB

      River: (29.5 BB, 2 players) 7:club:
      BB bets 15 BB, Hero calls 15 BB

      I cbet the flop. When he called I put him on a King. When the Ace hit I checked hoping he'd check. When he bet I called hoping he didn't have the flush but was just betting his K.

      In retrospect I think this might be a bad call?

      Would betting be better here?

      Equally, should I fold the river?

      Tiny sample size...but I think I was thinking he might be a bit of a maniac with those stats.

      Hi Edukator,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I would definitely cbet larger there. That small bet is asking for trouble ;)

      I'd make it 4.5 BB or so.

      When you hit the ace you didn't check because he donked into us (unless the hand converted poorly).

      I have a hard time believing that a Kx calls the flop just to donk the turn. So his bet is either a flush or some semibluff. So we are bluffcatching when we call both turn and river. However I think that at these limits we can fold the river when he bets again because I doubt he has a ton of bluffs.
