      i tried to get as much value out of him as i could, but the turn forces me to worry of a flush, straight, any other hand he might think is worth raising all in, ugh...such a bad turn card...just kills the action, and hits all possible draws.

      imagine this...he has good preflop starting hand, amazing flop...great river...... but the turn card...is just so AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH BAD.

      Hello ilovemagic,

      Raise the flop bigger pot size but otherwise looks fine while a lot of Ax hands pay you.

      Best Regards.

      thank you veriz. :) Do you think about .15c would be the raise on the flop, instead of my .12?

      and do you think players might notice me raisin huge when I hit flop and start to fold after a while? or does this limit not adjust too well to big raisers like I'm thinking I need to become, and just call anyways?

      I noticed when I first started noticing leaks in my own game, the main one was I was making bad calls when I knew clearly most of their range beat my range. So maybe I can take advantage of other bad players that have that same leak by making them call rediculously big bets/raises like 4-5x even when im IP? just to build the pot fast and protect my hand while taking advantage of their leak of calling too much?

      Pot size would be 18 cents.

      It's NL2 don't worry about that. :D

      no worries. i plan on paying for silver status once I know I can get off the NL2. I want to move up to the NL16 before investing any $ in pokerstrategy. I can beat NL2, now I just need time more then anything :)

      got the pot size raise thingy out of the way.

      player A bets $5 into a $10 pot. I can call the $5 , making the pot $20, plus raise another 20, making my raise $25 total.
