      CO: $59.46 (118.9 bb)
      BTN: $53.78 (107.6 bb)
      Hero (SB): $85.28 (170.6 bb)
      BB: $59.84 (119.7 bb)
      MP1: $41.44 (82.9 bb)
      MP2: $23.43 (46.9 bb)
      MP3: $95.48 (191 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with J J
      MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.50, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.50, Hero raises to $2.50, BB folds, MP2 calls $2, BTN folds

      Flop: ($6) 6 4 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $4.50, MP2 calls $4.50

      Turn: ($15) 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $7.50, MP2 calls $7.50

      River: ($30) T (2 players)
      Hero bets $15, MP2 calls $8.93 and is all-in

      Villain is a standard fish, 25/0 over 77 hands, AF=1, calls 50% on the flop and 50% on the turn. I put him on a pair lower than mine with a club(including 55) and went for value on 3 streets. Is there any reason to play the hand differently?

      Related: Preflop I used to raise larger with several limpers, especially OOP, something like 4x+1BB/limper+1BB for being OOP. I have been watching some TwiceT videos and he raises smaller so I decided to try it out. The problem is if I make it 8BB preflop against 4-5 limpers, one of them still has the odds to set mine and I just feel commited postflop, especially if they just call on the flop and raise the turn.

      Hello circoflax,

      Don't really see a reason why we should be raising smaller vs stations. Easy raise for value and bigger. :) But otherwise not much to comment vs his stack.

      Best Regards.
