      Pretty standard pot size raise pre-flop.

      On the flop I didn't like the board texture, felt I should bet pot to ensure draws over-pay to see the next card. However, betting that much will isolate me only against very strong draws, or made hands?

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      BB:
      $1.86
      Hero:
      $2.23
      BU:
      $1.93

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A:diamond: , A:club:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.07, 2 folds, BU calls $0.07, SB folds, BB calls $0.05.

      Flop: ($0.22) 6:heart: , 4:spade: , 3:heart: (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.22, 2 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.22

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Actually I wouldn't make it pot size on flop. Rather make it ~$0,20 and not commit yourself too easily and either don't make it look too strong.

      Best regards.

      Pot size was $0.22, so similar figure.

      I assume you meant a figure approx 2/3'rd of pot, a more standard bet size?

      Something similar. But at the same time not very small. But of course it ain't a huge mistake as I said. :P
