      Pre flop
      How could I played this hand better. I don't know so much about my opponent. I'm on BB and SB miniraise. I threat this reaise as a limp and by the chart I play the hand.

      I check/fold but the villan also checks.

      I think that my mini reaise was very bad, it will only work as a pot-swetener but I thouth that I should put in 50% of the pot becoase I have odds to get flush.

      How do you do when the pot is so small? Do you follow the normal wisdom to use pot%bet or do you do samething else?

      I get top pair and bet 100% of the pot. I feel that I needed to protect my hand with low kicker but now when I see the hand I feel that I should placed a 50% to get him till call and fold when he rereaises. Is this better play based on that I don't know anything about the opponent?

      Hi mateuszrybinski,

      Your hand works better as a 3bet bluff if you want to play it.

      I'd bet bigger on the turn to have more FE.

      River bet is a little too big, I'd got few cents lower since we are targetting a range of Qx and lower value hands (it's not like he is going to call with a worse Ax).

      Best regards.
