      Hi,

      I would not raise larger than 0.35$. With KQ I don´t mind making it 0.5$ and then playing for stacks, but with marginal hand I would rather not play for stacks. I would also call down turn and river- you´re often ahead, but raising for value would be too thin

      best regards,

      but 0.35$ gives him great odds?

      But $0.5 gives you reverse implied odds maybe?

      His flop leading range isn´t always draws and often hand like KsTs, Asxs or 8sxs has the same equity as your tp hand- also he may lead small with his two pair hands or better Qx hands, so I would not really try to build big pot with marginal hand. Thats why I would rather raise small and then bet half pot on the turn to then take my free showdown. This way I protect my hand against draws and get value from worse Qx and Jx hands

      i think i'm raising the flop for value, he is very loose, he would call with any Qx/Jx/FD/GS

      if you´re raising for value, then I don´t mind, although players would mostly not call big raises with just gutshots
