      It is important what player you are facing and your image at the table. If you c-bet a lot or i think you should c-bet here. If opponent is tight and you played tight it is ok to check, but on the turn you sould bet more then 1.25. in my opinion, 1,60-1,75 would be the number.

      My opponent is unknown.
      Played only 8 hands in this table before this hand so I my image in the table in to really defined yet. (even though I assume I'm considered as a tight player as I'm playing SSS)
      If you want to go by the books of PS I should have bet 2/3 of the pot (= 1.4$) on the turn.
      My question is about the flop when I'm holding the absolute nuts. He might call me here with Ax but then again it's unlikely he is holding an A since I have two aces and there in one on the board. The only drawing hands that will (might) call me (If I'm betting the flop) are KQ,KJ. So don't I want let my opponent catch a card that will improve his hand and make him pay me on the turn/river?

      Hello,

      Nice hand, well played. Except I would bet a bit more on turn, ~$1.50.

      Best regards,

      On micros I like to play straight forward and c-bet flop 2/3 and push turn, although cb on flop, 1.5$ on turn and push on river looks like a very good line.

      Sometimes (Or usually most of the times) you don't have to think in Micro Poker and just play the straight forward line of c-betting. That fish had K4c... (great call preflop :D )

      check in flop is not bad idea,
      you give him a free card but he will easier call you in turn (maybe he guess that you bluff at turn)

      He had the second nut FD on the turn so either way he is calling.
