      I thought my flop bet should have been big enough here, should I have gone bigger? Pot size maybe? How should I have acted on the turn?

      Hello SnoWonder,

      on the Flop I would have bet at least $2 because people are calling any betsize anyway when they have something worth calling. That said when he calls, you can put him on JT, Jx, flushdraws,T9s,T8s,KQ

      On the Turn it looks like a bad card but you still have loads of equity here versus his range. Therefore I shove like you did as well for pure value :)

      nice hand!
      Best regards,
      Gerv
