      What do you think about my river bet ? I have the impression it's a bit too large, but on the other side I wanted value from 2 pairs and random aces.

      Hey!
      A very nicely played hand!
      Your river bet is not big, since he has 1.78$ left and we want to get all that money. A well played hand. Against this opponent we'll certainly bet in river for value.

      Hello bmfbpi,

      Preflop your raiase is way too small. ~$0,25 should be standard raise. 4xBB and +1 per limper. And often times even being not against a full stack I do sometimes just limp into the pot and try maybe getting more people into the pot. But your play is definitely fine.

      Best regards.
