      BB: $140.69 (281.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A J
      3 folds, Hero raises to $1.50, SB raises to $4.50, BB calls $4, Hero calls $3

      Flop: ($13.50) 5 T 6 (3 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $6.50, SB folds, BB raises to $15, Hero raises to $45.50 and is all-in, BB folds

      $43.50 pot ($2.17 rake)
      Final Board: 5 T 6
      Hero mucked A J and won $41.33 ($21.83 net)
      SB mucked and lost (-$4.50 net)
      BB mucked and lost (-$19.50 net)

      Pretty surprised by his fold - I did not have any sample on the guy, but I guess my sizing had an influence on him.
      Do you agree with my sizing? It would be pretty standard on dryer flop but should I use a sizing designed to get allin in 2 barrels in these situations with drawy boards?

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      Preflop: Not a huge fan of calling here whilst I don't even know what's SB stealing range, our hand could easily be dominated. And what happens on the flop is that we can't really be sure how good our implied odds are and they may easily cost us. As you see yourself pot is $13,5 and if he bets $10 it's already 1/5 of our stack, kinda should even consider going all-in with FD? :)

      As played
      Postflop: I'd rather Bet the flop bigger so we would also gain fold equity. Though BB line doesn't really make sense whilst I would assume he almost always bets with made hands himself rather than Check/Raising and the size of ours was also sign of weakness.

      Best Regards.
