      BU is a tight, conservative (I can't say passive) player.

      Point(s):
      1. Did I made the correct bet sizes on the flop and turn?
      2. I put BU on the following ranges: 88-JJ, AKs, AKo

      thanks! :D

      I would check turn and call or c/raise if he bets, then bet on river.

      Now if he gets backdoor flush shit happens.

      With your Turn bet I think you scaried some pocket pairs (88-TT) away :D

      also whats the chance he is holding 2-3(!) or 6-7?
      imo he's holding something like 88-TT

      Hello 36bullets,

      I like the way you post your hands and the questions are very good. They also improve your game and it's good for us to evaluate the hand.

      1. Did I made the correct bet sizes on the flop and turn?

      Yeah, those bets are totally fine, the main thing is that we just are trying to get his whole stack by river and with such betting sizes we easily get them.

      2. I put BU on the following ranges: 88-JJ, AKs, AKo

      Without any stats, it's kinda hard to put him on a range, it could be even wider and what likely is the case.

      About the game, I'd say you did perfectly fine, I'd also rather just Bet/Bet/Bet against his stack, I don't want him to Check behind the turn or anything and I hardly see him bluffing there that often just because of his stack.

      Best regards.

      Hi veriz,

      Thank you very much for your insights!

      Regarding the stats thing, I'm still trying to figure out how to use them in my game. I can use the PS elephant already but I'm still figuring it out. Maybe on my succeeding posts, I'll included the stats of my opponents.

      Again, thank you very much! :D

      Good luck with it. Stats really help the game. :) Not that it ain't possible to beat the micro stakes without them but makes just a lot easier to do that.
