      That's a funny one. :D

      @ hand:

      In freeplays first bet should always be potsized, so bet pot size on the turn and shove river.

      As played, the pot on the river is too small to shove and therefore bet 1/2-2/3 potsize, I'd bet 0.60$.

      Why bet potsize and not 2/3 potsize? (According to article)

      Might be silly question, but this is not a made hand. We have toppair, but no good kicker here... so this is not actually a made hand right? But yes I know one should bet here...

      Can someone give me a explanation to this play? I have faced this few times already.

      I know how you feel... Which is why I just checked on the flop. Hopefully the judge will shed light on this hand.

      I like the check on flop, bet Turn potsize and shove river.

      Correct therefore just check on the Flop ;)

      Turn however you MUST bet and generally I dont worry about a flush.
      The river is a blank so betting for value is the way to go as explained.

      I agree with the betsizes (Bet Pot, Bet 2/3 the next street) told by other members
