      Hello patszerdonk,

      Preflop: The worse the hand, the smaller the raise? Just do it normal size with any hands, not just with AA -> $0,08, 33 -> $0,04. :)

      As played
      Postflop: Nope, I wouldn't really Call it here, rather just fold the hand. Try asking yourself such question why I can Call or why should I call or should I even raise or what I am trying to achieve with my Call. Really as well depends on the opponents CBet on flop and how he does play postflop. What about his 3bet and etc factors.

      Poker ain't that easy that you can always play the same way every single flop and every single opponent. :)

      Best regards.
