[NL2-NL10] NL5 SH trips on river bet sizing

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BB = ($10.28)
      MP2 = ($5.40)
      MP3 = ($4.05)
      CO = ($3.00)
      BU (Hero) = ($15.60)
      SB = ($2.62)

      Preflop: Hero is BU with T, Q.
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, SB folds, BB calls $0.15.

      Flop: ($0.42) J, T, 3 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.20, BB calls $0.20.

      Turn: ($0.82) T (2 players)
      BB bets $0.50, Hero raises to $3.00, BB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.32.

      How was my play up to the river, and what would be more appropriate bet sizing to milk the most out of BB?

      Hello Ickki,

      Preflop: You don't have to open from BTN 4bb while you have a loose range here. 3bb is enough.
      Postflop: Bet the flop bigger as you would also do with normal hands. But otherwise I would raise it a bit smaller like $2,40 or something similar. He is making a mistake anyways if he calls.

      Best Regards.
