      Good raisesize? And are there any arguments for calling this bet and raising the turn? It didn't feel like it since I want to build a big pot, and that small bet + call doesn't.

      Prima Network No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (6 handed) Hand History converter Courtesy of

      MP ($11.05)
      CO ($13.93)
      Button ($9.59)

      Hero ($9.65)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with Q[:heart:] , Q[:diamond:] .
      Hero raises to $0.4, 3 folds, SB calls $0.35, BB calls $0.30.

      I wouldn't have done this.
      There are so few hands in their range that would have the board and they'd play onwards. Only 3 cards left in the deck that could have hit the board. You'd need to be very lucky to get more out of this then.
      I'd simply call and hope he fires again on the turn.

      It's good to build pots, but it's not always the best decision.

      I call cause he can't have hit this board. I'm hoping for a second bet on the turn and maybe he improves.
