      $0.1/$0.2 No Limit Holdem
      6 players
      Converted at weaktight.com

      Stacks:
      UTG redtruck62 ($20.00)
      UTG+1 Hero ($22.02)
      CO miguelsanches36 ($11.68)
      BTN Mindfactory ($23.67)
      SB sjaak57 ($21.62)
      BB iminaki2 ($33.17)

      Pre-flop: ($0.30, 6 players) Hero is UTG+1
      1 fold, [color:#272BA6]Hero raises to $0.80[/color], 3 folds, [color:#B93238]iminaki2 calls $0.60[/color]

      Flop: ($1.70, 2 players)
      iminaki2 checks, [color:#272BA6]Hero bets $1.40[/color], [color:#272BA6]iminaki2 raises to $2.80[/color], [color:#B93238]Hero calls $1.40[/color]

      Turn: ($7.30, 2 players)
      iminaki2 checks, [color:#272BA6]Hero bets $3[/color]...

      Having position I almost never fold to these c/miniraises with ace high. on the turn he shows weakness so I fire a bullet.

      Should have I played it differently?

      on low limits c/r often show a lot of strength.
      If I don't have a good made hand or strong drawing hand i will usually fold to c/r.

      If you float him ip, then it is better bet 6$ on the turn, then you have at least some fold equity. My line would also b/f on that board.

      ok, my bluff bets have been too low, will do higher next time.

      and what do you think of the size of the bet on the flop, almost pot-sized bet but players like to make moves on paired boards, or call with trash and bet river.

      I like your betsize, there is flushdraw and you don´t want him to give free card.
      Players don´t make so much moves with KKx or AAx boards, since it is quite likely that you could hold K or A and they rather fold if they don´t have anything.
