      BB is an aggressive reg with high squeeze, but I thought the button raise size should scare him off.

      Flop check/raise size ok vs his overbet?

      PokerStars - $0.10 NL (6 max) ZOOM - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: $15.16
      Hero (SB): $11.21
      BB: $18.09
      UTG: $5.00
      MP: $19.20
      CO: $28.42

      Hero posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has 5:heart: 5:diamond:

      fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to $0.40, Hero calls $0.35, fold

      Flop: ($0.90, 2 players) 5:club: T:spade: Q:heart:
      Hero checks, BTN bets $1.00, Hero raises to $3.00, BTN raises to $6.43, Hero raises to $10.81 and is all-in, BTN calls $4.38

      Turn: ($22.52, 2 players) T:heart:

      River: ($22.52, 2 players) K:spade:

      that is not really an overbet, it's 110% of the pot. Anyway given his large sizing both pre and on the flop,

      a) We don't need to raise so large to get stacks in on future streets
      b) However against such strength we shouldn't really be bluff raising here too often so is there really a need to raise smaller to allow us to bluff cheaper? I don't think so.

      I think 2.50-3$ seems ok to me. Not a big issue at all.

      Hello jules97,

      Seems to be still fine for me as you played it. Don't really have problems here. Well played!

      Only comment I can give is that it's actually a pot size Bet cause rake is excluded and if you press pot button it usually takes the rake as well.

      Best Regards.

      Can we more or less assume that we are getting the implied odds to call preflop because his openraise size is so big and can we assume that the aggressive BB will most likely not try to squeeze wide because he will sense strength there as well?

      That's what I assumed Avatars91. I never see anyone bet 4bb from BUT in zoom nl10, so I figured he either really, really likes his hand or it was a misclick.

      It's also NL10 so you are able to get the stacks most likely very easily.
