      Should I be 3-betting preflop? I decide to just flat since raiser isn't opening many hands and certainly not for a raise and there is only 1 early position limper to close the action. I check-raise the flop hoping he's min-raising his very strong hands preflop. He calls. My turn bet is designed to set up a decent sized river bet. Should I bet more on the turn to protect more against a draws or is my sizing okay?

      Hello Meemawuk,

      Preflop: Nope, 3betting ain't a must. Against tighter opponents I'd as well just Call and play postflop against them.

      As played
      Postflop: You may even want to raise flop a bit bigger ~$2,40 or something similar. Otherwise seems to be fine, nothing much you can do there, only reasonable play would be to bet like $3,50 on turn which might get a bit more value.

      Best regards.
