      This was the 3rd or 4th pot I had raised in a row

      could this have been played any better?

      I think I could have bet more on the flop to balance my play as If I had a genuine hand I most certainly would have bet more for protection

      I think around $5 sounds good


      CO:52/5/5/29/128

      SB:18/11/3/28/279

      Hi salflip,

      c-betting this flop is not really bad in general, but you might consider to check behind here: CO has a PFR of 5 and raise/calls preflop - even though his VPIP looks very fishy, he seems to raise only a small portion of hands. Furthermore, SB coldcalls after a raise and a reraise. Especially with your image (they may see you as a maniac) its a spot where you often get called my monsters, that want to let you bluff into them. In general, such a call after a raise and a reraise is typically a very strong hand.
      If you bet, I agree that you shoul bet a little more on such a flop, e.g., 5$.

      As played, I like the check behind on the turn, as you have gained additional outs. I also like sizing the value bet on the river.
