      MP [color:#C00000]gxtwo ($1.29)[/color]
      CO-1 ($0)

      Preflop: gxtwo is in MP with Q :club: A :diamond:
      Zentano calls 0.02, gxtwo raises to 0.04, 4 folds, Zentano calls 0.02.

      Flop (0.11) A :spade: 8 :heart: 5 :diamond:
      Zentano checks, gxtwo checks.

      Turn (0.11) 9 :heart:
      Zentano bets 0.06, gxtwo raises to 0.12, Zentano calls 0.06.

      River (0.35) 5 :spade:

      Hi GX2

      At low limits don't try anything fancy, you have hand bet 1/2 pot to pot size depending of the board, number of opponents, reads, etc...

      Merry Christmas gxtwo and thazar,

      In my oppinion, Preflop, Hero should raise 4bb+1bb, with 1 limper, so Hero should raise to $0.10 (5bb). Besides, Hero may cbet on Flop for value and by doing so Hero may go all in by the Rival. As played, you should check/raise bigger. Thanks :s_cool:

      You should raise bigger preflop, a cBet for value on the Flop is mandatory and then mostly you can bet again on the Turn because there are so many hands that you beat that call two bets at least

      Maingoal of Poker is to earn as much money as you can and you are not doing that Preflop (minraise), Flop (Check back) and Turn (Minraise ? )
