      Villain is unknown.

      Should I have cbet the flop? Though the hand has sufficient strength to slowplay without having to worry much about being outdrawn (I am speaking of my hand after the turn.), betting the turn for value is correct given the relatively small potsize, correct?

      I'm definitely c-betting the flop after he checks to you.

      Standard c-bet on flop here, pretty much mandatory =D.

      As played I'd also bet turn for value against unknown.

      Hey cyzo,

      preflop is standard.

      On the flop c-bet is mandatory. You don't have a made hand and want to win the pot right here although you have many outs to improve. The villain showed weakness and that's sign you should take a stab.

      As played, after villain checked both flop and turn I don't see him leading out on the river, so just value bet turn and hope he hit a piece of the board. Unfortunately this time he didn't.
