      Hi, adsefghijk!

      Ideed, nice hand.

      I think the raise is fine but since the board is quite draw heavy I wouldn't mind going as high as pot size ($0.69). That would give your opponent 2:1 odds for a call. Also, mind that it's a multiway pot.

      To calculate a pot size raise just do 3x your opponent's bet + the size of the pot. In this case, 3*(0.16)+0.21 = 0.69.

      And in such a board there is no such thing as slowplaying. Probably 1/2 of the deck would scare either you or your opponent on the turn.

      I know how to calculate a pot size bet but the thing is - if I raise to $0.69, what would continue? Probably nothing I beat except for maybe some draw.

      Exactly. Problem is the board allows too many draws. If your opponents have nothing to call with, too bad, shrug and move to the next hand. But if they do you want to get max value with a hand as strong as yours.

      But anyway, your raise is fine too... does the same job and you'll be all in by the river - which is what you want.
