      Would be better to raise more at this limits?

      Pacific, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 7 Players

      BB: $2.12 (106 bb)
      MP1: $6.46 (323 bb)
      MP2: $2.49 (124.5 bb)
      MP3: $4.12 (206 bb)
      CO: $1.39 (69.5 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $2.07 (103.5 bb)
      SB: $0.44 (22 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A K
      3 folds, CO raises to $0.04, Hero raises to $0.12, 2 folds, CO calls $0.08

      Flop: ($0.27) 7 9 8 (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $0.13, CO raises to $1.27, Hero folds

      Hello kiromanAAKK,

      Preflop: Vs min-raises I am using usually 4x his raise. :) Although while he is that smallish stack then it ain't a huge mistake.

      As played
      Postflop: Don't like your CB at all. a) There is no point to CB such a board, it hardly hits opponents range ; b) Your CB size is never going to make better hands to fold ; c) You are even giving any draws correct odds for Call.

      Best Regards.

      veriz, by "hardly hits opponents range" did you mean it hits his range hard? Or hardly as in not very likely?

      Looking at HH I thought we had AA.. but with AK this is not a good cbet.. we dont have any backdoor draws and he is not likely to fold any draw to small cbet that we made.

      Well, hits his range. :) I mean a lot of SCs/pairs any type of hands are going to continue there. Not many better hands you making to fold anyways.
