      Flop raise is too small. If you make it ~0.85 you will still stack anyone who is going to stack off on this board anyway, but not give him a great price to draw.

      Hello NthnPrsnal,

      What's your idea behind the raise? If you really want to protect your hand then rather do a proper raise which is ~$0,80 and protect your hand from so many draws. ;) With such a raise you are just giving very good odds, which means if he had FD for it he would need 4:1 odds and he is exactly getting those odds and you ain't even forcing him to make mistakes.

      Best Regards.
