      I would bet a little bit larger on the flop maybe 8-9$ but then fold to any further action, because this boards hits the coldcalling range (small PP, suited con.) so much.

      I don't play these games, but I would say yes. You are not really ahead of much with your hand on this board.

      #2

      Bet more to protect your hand and to get information. Fold to any further action.

      Good luck at the tables!

      What about this hand? I raised to 52 because of his high flop AF, so i thought he would do the same w/ a draw.

      on the shorthanded hand looks to me like he's protecting agains draws on flop, that kind of flop hits villain very often (2 pairs, set, flush/straightdraws) you only beat draws on flop and more over it's only a coinflip even against those, so I think you should bet something like 7$ on flop and fold to a raise.

      Looks like my postflop play still needs some polishment. :)

      Hi debelinko!

      I agree with degnic. You should bet around $7-8 and fold to any further action.

      Good luck at the tables!
