      Upon reviewing the hand, I come to the realization that I bet horribly and very well have lost my stack. The guy was a spaz, so I didn't bet big hoping to induce a bluff...but still, my pre-flop bet was .10....but after the flop only .04...Should I have potted it there?

      He ended up semi-bluffing the Turn, which I was happy to call since I didn't put him on 89 or 58...I was thinking he had 2 pair, smaller set, or flushdraw.

      You have to bet bigger on the Flop. You want to earn more money so start out betting bigger! This opponent plays 71% of their hands which is pretty bad because it is something like this:

      On the Turn - again! - you have to bet bigger, you want to go all-in as soon as possible and with your betsize, that is just not possible.

      Best regards,
