      Hero (UTG): $2.19 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 17, 3B: 5, AF: 2,3, Hands: 3191
      CO: $1.61 - VPIP: 56, PFR: 11, 3B: 0, AF: 2,0, Hands: 9
      BTN: $1.15 - VPIP: 33, PFR: 25, 3B: 20, AF: 0,0, Hands: 12
      SB: $2.01 - VPIP: 30, PFR: 20, 3B: 0, AF: 0,0, Hands: 30
      BB: $1.96 - VPIP: 25, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 3,0, Hands: 12

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is UTG with T :diamond: T :spade:
      Hero raises to $0.08, 1 fold, BTN calls $0.08, 1 fold, BB calls $0.06

      Flop: ($0.25) 2 :club: 3 :club: 5 :heart: (3 players)
      BB bets $0.06, Hero raises to $0.42, BTN folds, BB folds

      Isn't a pot-size raise too big? I mean, no weaker hand is going to call here imo. I want to raise for VALUE, not to isolate myself against better hands.

      Hello Imimba1,

      Well, you don't have to always do pot size raises. You have to pick up decent boards for that. Where you could easily be against nutted hand then we don't have to do pot size. Quite obvious that there ain't tons of worse hands. Instead make something like 30 cents which is good enough.

      Best Regards.
