      I dno how should I have played this. He reraised on the preflop, so I checked turn and river wanting him to bet with whatever he had (I put him on AA,AK, QQ, AQ, with which I think he would've bet on the river with all those hands) should've bet on turn, should've pushed on river?

      I think it was quite obvious that he either had a 7 or 5 (with any pocket he would've raised preflop, straight he wouldn't have played that way) or both from the over PSB at flop, so raised his bet. Was bit suprised he reraised it, but still thought that he couldn't have anything else than 7A or 75, I was ahead of both hands so I called it. Good call?

      sometimes I like to call this kind of hands from small blind and see the flop. I posted this because I thought I bet too little on turn and river, was lucky that he had a Flush with A high, so he raised me, but as general, how should I have bet on turn and river to get the maximum profit from different hands?

      How to get maximum profit in very good hands. I sometimes also slowplay them too much and don´t get mostly nothing:
      1) Check/raise flop. If he has overpair then he would probably go all-in if not then all-in on the turn. He maybe has 2 outs, that can beat you and he probably are pot commited anyway with his overpair
      2) I would wait more to enter the game until I can post BB. He overbet a little on the flop, thats not very good. I think he might even have two pair or straight, but SSS idea is going all-in with overpair and nothing you can do about bad luck
      3) Again building the pot. Check/re-raise 1,5$ should be fine. I think that I would then go all-in on the turn if someone really has flush or 9 he would call you, if not you can´t profit much anyway.

      1. Depending on his stats and aggression you can decide whether to make value bets or play check/raise. Against unknown it would be ok to play as you did , except you should make a half pot bet on river or something.
      2. Why post a blind there? They will hit you again in 2 rounds. Someone sitting on the BB could be holding anything like 2 pair that he is trying to protect from a straight , but since it is HU i would call the all-in as well.
      3. I would call flop and make HPSB on turn/river

      1)Too bad CO didn't raise your flop lead. Also OK is c/c flop, lead turn if you're sure CO will conti-bet. As played I'd lead turn for $4 and push river.
      As played I'd push on the river hoping that CO's turn check was trying to induce a bluff. Just about any legitimate re-raising hand is calling this river.

      2)I'm sure that 80% of the time you are good here when the money goes in on the flop. NH.

      3)Although you have only 20BB's to get into the middle you still need to build a pot. C/c or lead flpofor $1 are OK. As played, I'd lead turn for $2 so as to leave <PSB on the river.

      Please teach me to flop FH's :D
