      1) why do you raise 3x aces and not 4x? I usually raise 3x medium small pairs to built the pot. but you do not need this here
      2) the flop is awful 3 hearts and very drawy I would rather raise him on the flop 3x and check the turn.
      i guess the rest is good maybe raising him at the river? He would have played his draw more aggressively?

      Hi Nocco88

      interesting situation.

      Well regarding betting sizing i suggest to bet 4bb size in low limits but this is not a must.

      1) why do you raise 3x aces and not 4x? I usually raise 3x medium small pairs to built the pot. but you do not need this here

      Well i don't agree exactly with that. We can use different bet sizing regarding the position but not regarding cards since it is very dangerous that we became readable and we don't want that. If for example we always bet 3bb with 77-JJ and always 4bb with QQ-AA some thinking players can notice that and that we don't want.

      As played i see this line just fine since you are playing vs deep and you don't want to play for stack in this situation. You can still hit your nuts flush so pot control line here is just fine.

      Lets wait also on our pro judge opinion:)

      Good luck at the tables.

      Hello Nocco88,

      Kind of dumb spot while even being so deep here. If I'd be 100BB then I'd happily even raise the flop and play for the stacks vs that kind of opponent who could easily even have worse there.

      But while we are so deep I guess going for pot control ain't even so bad, although I would most likely still threw a small raise on the turn while his Bet size is really weak there.

      Best Regards.
