      i know i need protect..bigger re-raise..and again MP3 raise and i min raise again ...i think this is biggest mistake here...if i raise him with 2.50-3.00$ MP1 would call for flush and would be commited,kinda..and i could stack them both...right?

      why do you raise so small??? make it 1,30 or so the first raise and the last raise should be a shove as you are way ahead....

      Hello crodady,

      I'd definitely raise it bigger on flop, ~$1.40 or something similar and if we get raised again then just ship it. Don't like such min-raises at all, we are just giving perfect odds for them to Call for any kind of draw.

      Best regards.
