      $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 7 Players

      MP2: $10.46 (104.6 bb)
      MP3: $4.25 (42.5 bb)
      CO: $13.50 (135 bb)
      BTN: $8.40 (84 bb)
      SB: $10.20 (102 bb) 13/13/3.0/9.5/67
      Hero (BB): $10 (100 bb) 18/3/4.0/0.0/34
      MP1: $5 (50 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 6 6
      5 folds, SB raises to $0.30, Hero calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.60) 4 A 6 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.42, Hero calls $0.42

      I decided to slowplay. The board wasn't very draw heavy and I thought I could let him continue to raise atleast once more before I fire.

      Turn: ($1.44) Q (2 players)
      SB bets $1, Hero raises to $3, SB calls $2

      I decided to raise here because I wanted to build the pot up now. I wanted to make the river card expensive for him. Was the raise size fine?

      River: ($7.44) 4 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $4, SB folds

      Here I thought I'd bet about half the amount of pot. I didn't wanna make the call for him too expensive. Should I have perhaps raised lesser to get a call or was my move right?

      Results: $7.44 pot ($0.36 rake)
      Final Board: 4 A 6 Q 4
      SB mucked and lost (-$3.72 net)
      Hero mucked 6 6 and won $7.08 ($3.36 net)

      Hello maheepsangari,

      Usually it's safer to raise it right on the flop since very often raising the turn will look a lot stronger. For given reason I'd raise it on the flop. :) But overall as played not much to add, most likely I'd ship myself on the river.

      Best Regards.
