      The c-bet is fine maybe $0.70 would have been better, but when your opponent calls on a rainbow flop with not many drawing possibility's he must have something better than ace high so calling on the turn is the wrong decision.

      Hey SoWe,

      welcome to the SSS forum!

      C-bet on the flop is nice and standard, but when opponent doesn't give up against your c-bet it's best to give up the hand unless you improve your hand, therefore folding on the turn to his bet is a better choice.

      P.S.: Please remove the results when you post the hands on the forum, because they might affect opinion of the people who participate in the discussion.

      Hi SoWe,

      Shove is better than c/c on the Turn if you decide to play the Turn. Personally I don't.

      I also jam the Flop directly tbh to get some more FEQ. Most likely he will fold all midpairs, PPs and stuff.
      Betting this small entice midpairs/bottompairs to call imo.
