      Villain is super loose 79/16, 3bets pretty loose. Seems he overplays his hands maybe?

      Raising A9 from CO to steal, end up isolating the fish which works just fine for me. Generally I'm happy with this hand, but when I get bet into on the river here, should I have made the raise smaller to extract more value? How do you figure out if/when this is necessary?

      And with the turn, is the call fine or should I have raised him here?

      Or should I have adjusted my bet sizing from the flop in order to try to get him all-in by the river anyway?

      I feel like I could have gotten more value somehow.

      Party, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 8 Players

      UTG+2: $2.02 (101 bb)
      BB: $3.06 (153 bb)
      MP1: $1.52 (76 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 9 A
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, 2 folds, BB calls $0.06

      Flop: ($0.17) 2 A K (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.11, BB calls $0.11

      Turn: ($0.39) 9 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.26, Hero calls $0.26

      River: ($0.91) 7 (2 players)

      Hi Knyght,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: Looks fine. Dry flop, we don't need to bet big (plus our hand is not the strongest)

      Turn: Once we pick up two pair I feel much more comfortable with my hand and I'm ready to play for stacks. Because of this I'd like to raise the turn enough to be able to comfortably shove the river.

      For example a $.6-$.7 raise is fine.
