      Hello PlasmaLine,

      Welcome to the NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Do you play BSS? If so then you should add to full stack. :)

      Preflop: About the play I'd still raise standard size preflop so $0,50 = 4xBB + 1BB per limper.

      As played
      Postflop: I'd Bet the flop bigger ~$0,80+ and then just ship it on the turn.

      Best Regards.

      Hi veriz,

      thanks for the quick reply. However, I don't quite understand your comment on my play...

      - I do actually play Mid Stack Strategy - therefore the raise was 3BB+1BB for the limper.
      - You're probably right about betting higher at the flop, but what do you mean by "ship it on the turn"? I don't quite get this, could you please explain?

      Thanks,
      and keep up your good coaching!
