      River: ($5,25) K:club: (2 players)
      SB bets $2,00, Hero folds.

      Final Pot: $7,25


      Ok... theres no doubt about the pre flop play.

      Flop: Was my C-Bet ok?
      Turn: The board started getting more dangerous, so I figured I'd check and see the free river.
      River: Now the board is simply way too dangerous and I couldn't call his bet.


      Should I have played it differently?

      If your c-bet gets called the pot will be double your remaining tokens, so you must push anyway. So you can consider a push on the flop. It is unlikely villian holds a Q. If villian wants to chase you can make him pay for it.
      I would push flop.

      Cool, thanks for the reply.

      I was wondering here. Let's change the situation a bit. Suppose he raised on the flop. How should I act then?

      I was the pre-flop aggressor. His raise on the flop would show a lot of strength wouldnt it? Should I then fold?

      On NL25 you cant give the chum credit for much. If he flat calls you and then lead bets into the PFA with top set he is chum. I would push all-in and make a note that he donks the flop oop. Many bad players see a paired drawy board and think that bluffing is a good option.

      i am interessting in the stack size of the original hand.

      you can go broke on the flop, but i didnt think this is a very nice play, its just simple ;)

      bet Flop and push the Turn is also a possibility.
      The A is not the best card for you but he will often have small pockets with a :club: so you have to protect.
      Sometimes he has a Q, A or the Flush.
