      Preflop: Hero is SB with 3, 3.
      Hero calls $0.05, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.20) 4, 4, A (2 players)

      Turn: ($0.60) 5 (2 players)

      River: ($0.60) 3 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.40, Hero raises to $1.4, BB calls $1.00.

      Final Pot: $3.40.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a full-house, threes full of fours (3 3)
      BB shows a straight, five high (8 2)
      Hero wins with a full-house, threes full of fours (3 3).

      Should I've bet the turn too?

      Also on the river raise I was scared of some crap like 4A or 45s but still it's a very small chance for the guy to have those hands and play them so passive up till the river, isn't it?

      First of all ... raise first in preflop. On a shorthanded table you have to open raise any 2 cards you wanna play. Don't openlimp small pockets because there aren't any other cards you would open limp. Especially not from the SB first in.

      If you have raised preflop you have to do a cbet in a hu pot most of the time.

      Turn cb is okay because there isn't any weaker hand calling you. I bet the turn again for free sd because i think many players call the flop bet with nearly any 2 they have called preflop. So KJ KQ etc. Flushdraws ...

      So I bet the turn and if the river isn't a 3 i would take the free sd. If the turn isn't the 3 and he donks i fold.
