Turn: (\$4.17) 2 (2 players)

River: (\$4.17) 6 (2 players)

Final Pot: \$4.17.

flop:
1.BB players bet half the pot, I won the two pairs, the match is set to win only me! Of course, filling, but the question is, how much more appropriate to raise it? I do not stand behind there is a rival! I added a 0.18 in actual combat, I do not know whether the size of the bet right? In fact, many times, I have been filling the seat of your pants to determine the size, I would like to ask you, there is no principle to follow ah?

2. after I raise, btn players miniraise I, BB players with the note, then, how can I do? call? Raise? Or shove ah? Actual combat, I all in, and my hand felt big enough, can only be lost on the FLOP set. Do not know how the teachers think?

Hello wangwei520,

Here is a good article, how much to raise and how to raise:

About the game, your play should be fine, since he may also have there any kind of draw or something similar, sometimes even weaker hands.

Best regards.
