      Looks like he was trying to steal the pot, so you should re-raise him on the turn. If he goes all in than your sure he have a hand, otherwise he would fold, but you called and showed weakeness on the river so he took his last chance to take a pot and went all in.

      Thats just my opinion :s_grin:

      Hi,


      Raise bigger preflop, $0.5 is better, so is $0.6.

      On the flop you very likely have the best hand and anyone of them could be in there with a worse Ax hand, you need to get value by betting more than 1/2 pot. $0.85 would be my bet.

      Same on the turn, the Q is bad but for all we know he still has AJ there, i'm betting $1.5. As played when he raises the turn after you bet weak it looks like he might be praying on your apparent weakness, but the truth is if he's a tag he has you smoked there, he likely just called the flop to give MP3 fish a chance to stick around with 33/88 or he has AQ. If you think he's bluffing then 3betting the turn makes no sense since there are no draws he could have, you're better off calling the turn planning to check/call the river. Calling the turn to fold the river is probably wasting money.


      Hope it helps.
