      Full Tilt Poker $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em - 9 players

      UTG+2: $4.40
      Hero (MP1): $22.64
      MP2: $9.97
      CO: $45.20
      BTN: $4.22
      SB: $6.43
      BB: $13.16
      UTG: $13.12
      UTG+1: $10.20

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is MP1 with T:club: T:spade:
      1 fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.35, 1 fold, Hero calls $0.35, 5 folds

      Flop: ($0.85) 7:diamond: T:diamond: 5:spade: (2 players)
      UTG+1 bets $0.70, Hero raises to $1.70, UTG+1 calls $1

      I think my bet size was too small now that I look back at it. This raise didn't really help me define his hand. $2-2.5 would probably be about right? Opinions?

      Turn: ($4.25) Q:diamond: (2 players)
      UTG+1 checks, Hero bets $2, UTG+1 calls $2

      I think the bet size is wrong here as well. Probably $2.5-3 should be enough for protection. But the call made me wonder if he actually made his small flush at all.

      River: ($8.25) J:diamond: (2 players)
      UTG+1 bets $2.50, Hero ???

      I know its a small bet, which makes it a crying call, but would a set be good here given the action?

      Hello danwong,

      Preflop: Since he is raising from UTG and by that he is showing a lot of strength I like your Calling style, likely going for set.
      Flop: And yes, I would definitely raise bigger here, as you mentioned $2+.

      As played when it was raised smaller
      Turn: Definitely bet it bigger here to give protection some kind of 1card FD, ~$3.
      River: I'd more often inclined to fold, since he could very often take such line with some smaller flush which is he is scared to face a big bet. We rarely beat anything here.

      Best regards.
