      (Rake: $0.11)

      With a minraise and call was my preflop raise too small?
      On the flop after the opponent checks I checked as I didn't want to scare him off.
      On turn with 2 possible flush draws should I have bet more?
      Same on river?

      Hello Chromehead,

      Don't slowplay your hand. Just make it easy and simple, we need still to protect our hand on flop and I'd definitely CBet there ~$0,60 and the same goes for turn bet. You have a huge leak in bet sizes I would definitely recommend reading articles about bet sizes or post hands to get the understanding how much you should bet.

      Best regards.

      well, in order to maximize profits... you have to bet, and bet strongly.
      you won't achieve superawesome value by betting 1/4 pot for 2 streets
