      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with Q:spade: , Q:heart:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, 3 folds, BB calls $0.15.

      Flop: ($0.42) A:spade: , 7:club: , 4:diamond: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.30, Hero calls $0.30.

      i tried to raise postflop trying to find where i stand and hoping to get free turn card (it didn't worked, unfortunately). Was it correct to fold turn?

      Hi,


      First hand villain seems rather tight, you don't often see a 15/13 just blindly donk out 2/3 for 2 streets on A-high boards against your MP3 range without a good reason, so unless he's getting really fed up with you and your continuation bets i think your line is fine.

      Second hand i'll probably raise the flop a little bigger to show i mean business, because he's a fish and it's more likely he's leading there with nonsense than the player in the first hand. When he continues on the turn he's either very aggressive with crap or he has an A, without further history folding the turn is fine.


      Hope it helps.
