      Party, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 9 Players

      UTG+2: $10 (100 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $10 (100 bb)
      MP1: $6.65 (66.5 bb)
      CO: $12.88 (128.8 bb)
      MP3: $5.62 (56.2 bb)
      BB: $3 (30 bb)
      MP2: $10 (100 bb)
      SB: $19.84 (198.4 bb)
      UTG+1: $12.16 (121.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 9 9
      3 folds, MP2 raises to $0.30, MP3 calls $0.30, CO folds, Hero raises to $0.90, 3 folds, MP3 calls $0.60
      This is an unusual move for me. I normally call pairs for set value, but I realized that doing so invites a shove from a later player.
      I realized though that the Raise should have been bigger.

      How much bigger.

      Flop: ($2.25) 2 5 T (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero bets $1.75, MP3 folds
      Bet size?
      I keep getting these situation where I'm unsure of how much to bet.

      Hello VorpalF2F,

      Preflop: At least 3bet it bigger then, though I don't really like it whilst you also have MP3 with 50bb. Do you plan to go broke vs him or what?

      As played
      Postflop: I'd still CB it smaller something like $1,50, especially vs his stack rather lower.

      Best Regards.
