      Curious about my Bet sizes here.

      First off, Flop needs to be bigger, $0.70. but the rest?

      CO: $23.72 (237.2 bb)
      BTN: $11.03 (110.3 bb)
      SB: $13.98 (139.8 bb)
      BB: $5.77 (57.7 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $10 (100 bb)
      MP: $10.46 (104.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with 5 5
      Hero raises to $0.35, MP folds, CO calls $0.35, 3 folds

      Flop: ($0.85) 2 5 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.65, CO raises to $2.04, Hero raises to $5.30, CO raises to $12.83, Hero calls $4.35 and is all-in

      Turn: ($20.15) T (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($20.15) 7 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Results: $20.15 pot ($0.91 rake)
      Final Board: 2 5 9 T 7
      CO mucked A 9 and won $0.00 (-$10 net)
      Hero showed 5 5 and won $19.24 ($9.24 net)

      Think the betsize is fine. You want worse hands to call on this dry board so I wouldn't make it bigger. I would shove his flop raise.

      Hi again MattDenness:) ,

      well you have a made hand here and you want him to call with worse so you can bet even less on flop. 2/3 pot bet would be just enough but of course it is better if you place a 75% pot bet and get called :f_cool:

      On the flop push is not necessary i think since we don't have to protect. We can bet just enough that if villain calls we have an easy push on Turn without over-betting.

      Also veriz will offer his opinion so lets wait on him:)
