      Hi nlhfowler,

      well bet sizing here is not good at all.

      You want to protect your hand vs possible flushes and you don't want to see neither 2 or 5 here. So bet it bigger on flop like 0.7~0.82. The best thing you want to achieve in this spot is to get all in on turn and you really don't want to give great odds to other players to call your bet.

      The other possibility is to check/raise but the problem is that Player 1 probably won't bet and it is hard to believe that Player3 who look decent is going to bet without made hand(he probably called for set value or suited connectors).

      So for me right action here is to bet bigger flop and push turn.

      Hello nlhfowler,

      Preflop: On those stakes make a normal raise which would be for me 4xBB.
      Postflop: No way I am going to CB so small and give them good odds. You practically are inviting them to come along and they ain't making even a mistake. Bet the flop ~$0,70 and also a lot bigger on the turn.

      Best Regards.

      You 4x preflop regardless of position?
      Or:
      4x utg and hj, 4x-3x co, 2.5x btn?

      Usually on all positions 4x and BTN 3x if you have a looser stealing range.
