      plz don't post results

      preflop raise is okay

      I would bet 0.25$ at the Flop (2/3 potsize)

      after his min reraise i would fold as a beginner. The Flop looks very dry and you only have got 10 outs left. And If he's got the 2 you'e nearly beat.

      If you've got a read and really want to reraise him, reraise all in directly!! But as I said, only if you've got a very good read

      You should only play on this limit if you can buy-in with $0.80 otherwise, you´re not really a short stack and the strategy is not as effective as it could be.

      Preflop you did everything right. On the flop bet always 2/3 of the pot as continuation bet. I would bet $0.25 here. After his raise you have 2 options.

      1. Go All-In, when you give yourself 10 full outs for your 2 Overcards and 4 Outs for the straight. That means that your opponent is only holding an Overpair here and not Two Pair or better.

      2. Fold otherwise.
