      Unusual situation in this hand: the worst pair, the worst flush draw and the worst straight draw! At the time, I thought the three plus my initiative justified a continuation bet even on the wettest possible flop, but I suspect I may not have been right. Or would a different bet size be more effective? Couldn't see how I could invest any more money after the raise, despite being unsure how badly I stood. Only 65 hands indicates villain is loose aggressive, stats 37/22/4.

      Hello Elroch,

      Add to full stack by the way. :)

      About the play, there is not much you can do. Practically you might be only drawing for the 3. Bet size should be fine as well. Myself I might do it like $0,12, although that ain't a huge mistake.

      Best regards.
