      Poker Stars, $0.08/$0.16 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players

      CO: $16 (100 bb)
      BTN: $16 (100 bb)
      SB: $17.39 (108.7 bb)
      BB: $13.11 (81.9 bb)
      Hero (MP): $17.26 (107.9 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with K Q
      Hero raises to $0.48, 3 folds, BB calls $0.32

      Flop: ($1.04) Q 2 A (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($1.04) A (2 players)
      BB bets $0.32, Hero calls $0.32

      River: ($1.68) 3 (2 players)
      BB bets $1.28, Hero calls $1.28

      I have 15 hands on opponent, dont see being him good.

      How would you play in such spot? Is this still a flop cbet to get value from worse Qx, 3rd pair type hands, some draws?

      Whats our options on turn? If i raise here im kinda isolating myself??

      He changes his betsize drastically on river, what does it indicates?

      Hi gAsheks,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: You are playing versus a 80 BB stack which implies he may be recreational, thus I think we have a cbet on the flop.

      As played his bet could mean that he wanted to keep you in and now wants value, or he is trying to bluff. But I would say it's more geared to value and I'd probably fold.

      Hmm, so bet flop, bet turn, check back river seems better? Or i have to check this turn?

      That Ax is not a bad turn card but we can't bet too large.I think if you bet 1/2 pot or so it would be good for thin value. So then we got 2 smaller value bets in.
