      No-Limit Hold'em, $1.00 BB (9 handed) - Hold'em Manager Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      saw flop | saw showdown

      Hero (UTG+1) ($21.50)
      MP1 ($57)
      MP2 ($127.10)

      MP3 ($45.75)
      CO ($126.35)
      Button ($37.50)
      SB ($115.65)
      BB ($100)
      UTG ($150)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG+1 with K, A
      1 fold, Hero bets $3.50, 1 fold, MP2 calls $3.50, 5 folds

      Flop: ($8.50) Q, 6, 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 checks

      Turn: ($8.50) 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $4, Hero folds

      Maybe I played this pot totally wrong but I trusted on my instincts this time.

      This player is a thinking player so he doesnt coldcall without a good reason on Mp2 9 handed. therefore I checked on the Flop because Q62 only hits KK+,AQ and I have to gamble with TT/JJ if he raises.

      Would you check on the Flop and/or the Turn thus giving up?

      Or would you in this case bet the Turn as he checked behind? Im having a hard time trying to place a cbet on opponents when I am OOP

      Since he's a thinking regular, I don't see him folding this flop so I like the check.

      About the turn, I don't see more FE here than on flop after a blank, but it would be nice to see "fold to c-bet turn" just in case(I didn't find it among the stats).

      So, I like the check and after he bets you could consider calling, but since you're OOP and only with 6(prolly unclean) outs I think it's best to just give up the hand.

      I would cbet on flop as I play micro limits again, but I still have to donk here and "advise" the judge B-)

      I suppose after 20k hands you played together, he knows smth about you so....I noticed he bets 74% on turn vs missed cbet. perhaps not very unusual, but your check out of position on flop and check on turn should be exactly what he needs here, because I don't think the 5 helped him improve

      19/11 doesnt look like a good reg so i simply cbet fold on this board you should have some fe.
