      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      UTG1(Hero) = ($1.07)
      UTG2 = ($1.70)
      MP1 = ($5.78)
      MP2 = ($3.60)
      MP3 = ($2.53)
      CO = ($2.00)
      BU = ($2.03)
      SB = ($5.13)
      BB = ($2.19)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG1 with A, K.
      CO posts deadblind, Hero raises to $0.20, 3 folds, MP3 calls $0.20, 4 folds.

      Flop: ($0.52) T, 4, Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.35, MP3 calls $0.35.

      Turn: ($1.22) 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $0.20...
      Pot: $1.22.

      No stats on opponent.
      Tight table image = me

      What am I supposed to do here?

      Hey painterman007,

      preflop you should count poster as limper, so raise 5BB instead of 4BB would be better here.

      Flop c-bet is well played.

      On the turn you have gutshot and 2 overcards which is quite a strong draw and with your remaining stack you cannot fold anymore, so it's best to push all-in to get some remaining fold equity.

      If you're interested, here's a similar hand, but from NL200 where two judges gave their opinions...

      On micro stakes people tend to be calling more rather than betting therefore you have to be more aggressive. So I bet here :)
