      Again, with that size on river you open yourself to bluff raise from misses FD. Bet/fold 2/3 pot. Besides he will call with any Qx so you're losing $ betting so little.

      Hey,

      Pre flop is very good.

      I like the flop size, I think we can target Ax hands here as well as pocket pairs and Qx. No point betting smaller as its impossible for him to have 2 overcards to float.

      As played on the turn I think your sizing is good, maybe we could go $5.50 on the turn $7 on the river and always get $12 from his pocket pairs that may fold vs a slightly larger turn bet.

      Pleno, I'm always a bit paranoid regarding value betting small in rivers with busted draws since I find very possible that it would incite villain to rebluff with busted draw. Also, in this hand I think we still get calls form worse to pair and even Hero calls from 2nd pairs.

      Can you give some input on these thoughts?

      Hey,

      Well if the hand makes no sense, turn goes check check, we bet small on the river then he suddenly raises then the last chapter of the book dees not make sense and thus we have induced a bluff and created even more value with the line :)
