      I think that I played that hand well, and just wanted to confirm it here.
      Turn bet for value from draws, river blocking bet.

      Nice Hand.

      My style would force me to bet 1.65 in the turn and check river.

      You look to extract more value than I do.

      what with those minraises pf? ?( Raise it up to 4BB.
      do you cbet 5/6 with a made hand? I'm guessing the answer is no so cbet as a bluff an amount that you will cbet for value.
      turn and river are fine.

      Few coaches on 2+2 wrote that is fine to raise 2.5bb from lp.
      It is a good price to steal blinds, and if opponent 3bet us, we have less to pay to see a flop.
      What do you think about it?

      And on flop like this with a made hand I would cbet the same, there is a fd and I want to cbet strong to protect a hand.
      What bet sizeing would be the best here?

      Certainly a sound argument, although it depends a lot on your opponents and your playstyle imo. Random food for thoughts:

      - If you're at a table full of nits that fold all the time it's fine, you rarely see flops anyway. Just make sure they don't start calling lighter if you raise less, or else that's not really an advantage anymore.

      - If the blinds are fishes it's not fine, you want big pots because they'll make a lot more mistakes postflop then you will, and you want those mistakes to cost them big time.

      - If you like to call and see flops in position against known light 3betters it's fine, except some of them will always 3bet you to the same amount so it'll cost you the same price to call anyway. If you fold most of the time to 3bets it's fine to 2.5x it too, although they can resteal on you cheaper themselves from then on.

      - If you're more the type to 4bet the shit out of them for 3betting you, then that means you win less money by 4betting if they also get to 3bet cheaper over your 2.5x preflop raise.

      I mostly raise to 4x at small stakes because i feel confident people will make more mistakes postflop then me anyway, and i like 4betting a lot, so i mostly want bigger pots the majority of the time. As usual, know thy enemy and think it through.

      Hope it helps.
