      BTN: $3.15 (157.5 bb)
      SB: $1.28 (64 bb)
      Hero (BB): $5.35 (267.5 bb)
      UTG+1: $3.76 (188 bb)
      UTG+2: $7.54 (377 bb)
      MP1: $0.95 (47.5 bb)
      MP2: $2.45 (122.5 bb)
      MP3: $2.06 (103 bb)
      CO: $2.02 (101 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J A
      UTG+1 folds, UTG+2 calls $0.02, MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.02, MP3 folds, CO calls $0.02, BTN folds, SB completes, Hero raises to $0.14, UTG+2 calls $0.12, 3 folds

      Flop: ($0.34) 6 4 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.20, UTG+2 folds

      I did not want to play this multi-way, so I boosted the bet somewhat pre flop. Is that sensible?

      Is this an appropriate bet size on the flop?

      i'd probably play it the same way including preflop sizing.
      a nutdraw can be a good thing to have multiway though... i just raise it "for value", doubt they're limping stronger A/J.

      Hello VorpalF2F,

      Preflop: I'd most likely raise it even bigger here.
      Postflop: Not much to comment, with FD+maybe even overcards kind of must to CB here.

      Best Regards.
