      Final Pot: $1,78

      I had almost no information on the other player.
      Pre-flop: standard raise with QQ.
      The flop is pretty bad, I'm not worry about diamond, but JT and 56 and I got no infomartion on the other player. I decide to try a raise. I don't think he got AA or KK but i want to know he got set or a straight.
      Turn: He called which is no good I thinking about the check, but the turn 4 didn't change anything so I tried once more, he call again.
      River: Almost instently raise me when the A came down, I fold.

      Hello!

      Well he could flopped the nut, but its very unlikely. The only thing that beats you is A9 and A :diamond: x :diamond: . Since there are a lot of draws an the board which did not complete, i guess that most of the time will be a bluff from busted draws.

      edit: your bets are very very small on that board. bet harder, let him pay with his draws

      The problem is I find that it's no matter i raise half size of the pot or 2/3 of the pot, they will call it. They think it's not a big difference.

      Hello jeszkar,

      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!

      Don't like that much the bet sizes, you have to bet it bigger on flop & turn, ~$0,18 on the flop and as played on the turn ~$0,40. Unfortunately not much you beat on the river. :(

      Best Regards.

      If I made larger bet I would lost bigger.

      Please read the articles about outs and odds. :) You are giving the opponents very good odds for drawing not that you will loose bigger. You loose already for giving the opponent so good odds. It's just horrible to think that you would even loose more then don't play poker at all since you will always loose. :(
