      Hello lukezo,

      Pretty close spot but definitely doable against his line. What's your plan if you get 3bet on turn?

      Q: my turn raise too low?

      Not the smaller, could maybe be a bit bigger but it ain't a huge mistake. If he would have Checked to you then you could very likely bet about the same amount.

      Best regards.

      I'm folding unless it isn't too big. He might easily have an 8 or 97/Q9 or K9/A9+FD (2:1 against this for me+have a J :heart:)

      Off topic: do you think I'm ready for NL10 if I add some money to my BR, I currently have 19BI for NL10.

      Good answer. :) Most likely he would trap you with such a play.

      Off topic: do you think I'm ready for NL10 if I add some money to my BR, I currently have 19BI for NL10.

      Trust me, over the time I have played and sometimes even attacked with looser BRM some limits I don't like it. It's not that far away for 25BIs so just grind a bit. :) There is never any rush in poker, rather learn and fix your huge leaks in smaller stakes than make them on higher ones where you will loose a lot.

      Of course you could be ready for NL10 but now again rather play it with proper BRM. On higher limits the 25BI doesn't work for example since you need even higher BI rule. Also it's short-handed which has even bigger variance.
