      I think calling flop should be ok cause the flop ain´t very drawy and I can let him to just splash his money with TQ,JQ,KQ kinda hands.

      Still on the turn, there are not like any probable draws so calling should be still fine right ?

      Hello acceleration123,

      Preflop: Still would raise it to $0,25. :)
      Postflop: Yeah, Calling both streets is totally fine and I would have done it as well. Nice hand!

      Best regards.

      Was playing a bit with some pre-flop bet sizes in rush lately in order to maximize the EV in blind steal situations and as well light 3bets.

      But I don´t really think that´s necessary because on this limit it doesn´t change much and also - not sure if it´s not just the fealing - but when I started to raise smaller from BU it seems I got called more lightly from blinds :D .

      Nah, I don't think so. :D Just a basic feeling, although I don't think that you have to adjust on those limits anyways with your bet sizes.
