      $0.02/$0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      BU:
      $4.86
      SB (Hero):
      $4.96
      BB:
      $2.96

      MP2:
      $1.63
      MP3:
      $4.14
      CO:
      $5.26


      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q, J.
      5 folds, Hero raises to $0.16, BB raises to $0.48, Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.16.

      Is this an okay spot to steal? Is the bet sizing ok or should I have bet smaller a bit like .12-.13 ?

      It depends only on what opponent are you against. But with this hand I think I would steel from anyone.
      Sizing is ok in my oppinion. I myself prefer to bet 3bb but I don't think it matters that much, because both have pros and cons.

      Hello CHARMANDER06,

      Depends really on the opponent. If he is 3betting you a lot then rather do smaller raise size like 3xBB but if not then 4xBB is totally fine. Nice hand! Way too weak to give up directly such a hand.

      Best regards.
