      Hello keoghh,

      You have a leak in your bet sizes and which you definitely have to fix. You have to CB it bigger on flop and also turn if you even want to 2nd barrel it. ;)

      Best Regards.

      But if i bet to big wont i be giving myself bad odds for the flush draw, which im betting for incase i make the flush.

      You and bet your odds? What do you mean? You are just representing a very weak hand here, that's the point. You induce raises and at the same time loose calls. There is no such thing, I am betting for my good odds.

      Odds only relate to calling a bet. The reason why you bet a draw is to give fold equity - you want your opponent to fold most of the time but if he doesn't then you still have a chance to make the flush/straight whatever.
      This is why you have to bet bigger, betting half the pot doesn't give you as much fold equity - in fact you are sometimes giving your opponent good odds to call you if he has a combodraw.

      Hope I helped :)
