      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      MP2:
      $28.85
      MP3:
      $20.12
      CO:
      $60.70
      BU:
      $27.25
      SB (Hero):
      $10.00
      BB:
      $19.04
      UTG1:
      $13.00
      UTG2:
      $13.93
      MP1:
      $39.10


      Preflop: Hero is SB with A, J.
      4 folds, MP3 calls $0.25, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1.25, BB folds, MP3 calls $1.00.

      Flop: ($2.75) T, A, 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.75, MP3 calls $1.75.

      Turn: ($6.25) 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $7.00, MP3 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $6.25.



      I happy about the line I took because I think I might have some weaker aces calling me however not with the sizing I took. My bet on flop now forces me to over bet the turn because there is no way I can bet smaller without committing myself, I think betting $2.25 -$2.5 on flop would have been much better sizing. giving me a just under pot size bet which I prefer to over pot size.

      Hi,

      You could also bet 1,50 pre for being OOP (BB still to act as well). Then bet 2,50 on flop and shove turn.

      Exactly.. so plan your hand from the Flop regarding betsizes because I know you miss a lot of value here over and over again

      Overbetshove = scary => people will call you less
