      Player2 lost $0.04
      Player6 lost $0.08

      yeah, I probably should have raised pre-flop.
      but "as played", I don't want to let BB set price for possible draw.
      obviously he folded anyway, but was my raise too small in relation to the pot?
      I went 4x his bet, but his bet was < 30% pot.
      so, he'd have to call .12 for .38 still getting a little better than 3:1

      what would the "proper" raise have been?

      Hello William340,

      Preflop: Could easily raise for value even. :)

      As played
      Postflop: We have to protect so raising is totally fine. We can easily treat those min-bets as weakness or even Checks and would make a normal Bet.

      Best Regards.

      but was my bet sized ok, or was it too small if he was on a straight or flush draw?

      sorry to keep bothering you.

      Yeah, raise size is fine. Could do a bit bigger but it ain't a huge difference. Treat the min-bet as check and add the 4 cents into the pot.
