      PF: Called for set-mining against PFRaiser

      Flop: Is my raise size alright? I'm raising 3.5x-4x there most of the time to give him bad odds in case he's drawing to his flush. Do I have to keep the Sb (or other players still in the hand in consideration)? Like raising 5x maybe?

      Hi Cheekopeh,

      Preflop: looks fine.

      Flop: The raise doesn't have to be huge to not give opponent odds to chase. The size is ok but can also be made smaller.

      Once we get cold shoved on I'm happy with my hands because SB is short so he can shove Qx/draws.
