      Should I float or raise the flop ? I think folding would be too weak against such a small bet right ?

      Hello acceleration123,

      Against such a 1/2 bet size you rather raise it or just fold. Don't really like Calling. With Calling you wont make him fold his better hands while he might be able to fold them vs your raise.

      Best regards.

      How should I decide when to float and when to raise ?

      First of all depends a lot on the opponent. If he is going to showdown a lot then there is no point to raise.

      And when the board looks that it didn't hit that much to him. For example on this board is only reasonable hand like a FD or Qx. And he doesn't have that many small SCs in his range anyways while raising from UTG.

      But overall you will get there with time, adjusting to boards, opponents and etc.
