      Hello igika07,

      Welcome to the English NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Why do you CB the flop so small? CB it bigger so you would also protect your hand. With your sizing you are showing just weakness.

      Best Regards.

      Yep, like 2/3 should be fine.
