      Hey all,

      I made a great call in position here with 4 to 1 odds pre-flop.

      I should have bet more on the Flop, 2/3 I think. I only bet half because I was hoping for a call, but that was a bad idea considering that I could have had two callers on the Flop. Am I right?

      Secondly, I think I should only have bet about 1/3 or 1/4 of the Pot on the River in order to get the call. At that point I was either way ahead or way behind. Betting half was just enough to make him fold, after a delay by him. Opinions?

      Thanks!

      Hello Navrark,

      Preflop: Calling here is totally fine as the SHC says.
      Flop: But since we hit a pretty good hand I would just bet near pot here to protect any kind of draws and maybe even get value from weaker pairs.

      As played
      Turn: I'd still keep betting, ~$0.30 into the $0.40 pot and if he decides to raise us we have an easy fold, otherwise we still could get value from some 1card of :club: type of hand or maybe even weaker Kx.
      River: Bet size is totally fine, I don't mind betting here 1/2 against fish.

      Best regards.

      Thanks for the reply.

      Perhaps in the micro-stakes it would be wise of me to make 3/4 a standard raise instead of 2/3. I lost out a lot of value on this hand as I could have gotten more from my opponent on the Flop and Turn. It also takes a bit more to shake these micro players sometimes.

      Yep, could be also a change, I also would use near pot line in micros since they are willing more easily to pay you off if you have a very good hand.
