      Hello Royaltramp,

      Yeah, I like your line but sometimes I would even raise it bigger preflop since it's NL2 and they tend to Call your raise anyways, just don't give them great odds. ~$0.22 or something similar should do it, since they wouldn't really recognize it, otherwise the bet sizing is fine. Nice hand!

      Best regards.
