      SB posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero has 8:heart: J:club:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.08, SB calls $0.07, fold

      Flop: ($0.18, 2 players) K:heart: 9:club: 2:spade:
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.10, SB calls $0.10

      Turn: ($0.38, 2 players) K:club:
      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($0.38, 2 players) J:heart:
      SB bets $0.34, Hero calls $0.34

      Standard cbet against an unknown I think. On the flop though, I think I got a little too happy when I hit my pair. I called with the intention of bluff-catching smaller pairs or maybe a flush draw, I guess, but I'm not quite sure I like it that much. Opinions?

      Hello TinoLaan,

      Preflop: If you opening that loose then you don't have to steal with 4bb.
      Postflop: Vs pot size Bet on the river I'd just fold it, GS also got there, doubt that you going to see many bluffs. :)

      Best Regards.

      What raise size would you suggest pre? 3BB? Or 3.5BB?

      I understand why I should raise smaller, would just like to know what you think would be a good raise size. And do you suggest raising that size from everywhere? Or only from the steal positions?

      Mainly from BTN cause the range of BTN is wide. 3bb is good enough cause you don't have that loose range. :)
