      ok so i think i mite of over bet the flop, but trying to protect my hand which i think im mostlikley ahead here.

      so he snap calls pot bet and we see the turn and now i think im in trouble, he even throws in a mini bet which makes me even more sure im behind was i right to just call here or even give up ?

      Hello xdowntimex,

      Add to full stack.

      Flop: Well, I wouldn't really bet exactly pot size on flop. It just tells him that you have a very strong hand. Most likely I'd rather consider betting ~$0,14.

      As played
      Turn: For the given odds I am not folding this, while the guy could easily even have just pairs/draws which we beat.
      River: Of course we are betting for value, or depending on the villain line, might even raise smallish to get value from pairs/2pairs/sets.

      Best Regards.
