      Hi again :f_cool: , here is another hand of mine. I wonder whether it was a good fold. Thaks for any suggestions

      My assumption is that BU flopped a set.

      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.02 BB (6 handed) - Hold'em Manager Hand Converter from

      Button ($3.89)
      SB ($1.42)
      BB ($2.16)
      Hero (UTG) ($3.68)
      MP ($2)
      CO ($0.79)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with K:heart: , Q:spade:
      Hero bets $0.08, 2 folds, Button calls $0.08, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.19) 5:heart: , 6:spade: , Q:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.12, Button calls $0.12

      Turn: ($0.43) 7:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.24, Button raises $0.72, Hero calls $0.48

      River: ($1.87) 3:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, Button bets $1.40, Hero folds

      Total pot: $1.87

      Button didn't show
      Outcome: Button won $3.18

      BU is 47/14/2.1

      Bet bigger on flop and turn. Until proven otherwise you're way ahead of villain's range, so just get more value on drawy boards.

      The turn is a bit dicey for a few reasons. First you bet small, so some guys might try and raise another Qx there just because of that. Second, hands like 54/64/68/87 hit a combodraw on the turn and depending on what kind of player he is, he might or might not raise with those. If he does raise with that, it's a mistake to fold. If he doesn't, it's a mistake to call or raise since you'll only be running into 55/66/77/75/76/65/98 stuff. Hence when you don't have reads on him, it sucks either way :)

      I'd say when in doubt fold and focus on correcting your sizing first.

      Hope it helps.
