      Was it correct to call in this case? I put villian on Ax, possibly 2 pair.

      Incidentally how is my bet-sizing looking? I was definitely making my raises too small initially in the first hands I posted. Would be good to know if I'm getting any better at it LOL

      Hello GazAsh2002,

      Preflop: I'd do it here $0,10 for the one limper.
      Flop: You could even bet it a bit bigger like $0,20 although your sizing ain't wrong either. When he has the Ax he is going to pay us anyways.
      Turn: Could consider betting a bit bigger like $0,45.
      River: And of course ship the moneyzzz. Usually when I see the opponent being loose enough then I might even at some spots just over-shove myself when I expect him to Call with the Ax anyways.

      Best regards.
