SB is 11/6 nit, BB is 50/15 fish.

Preflop is pretty standard here. I get called from SB nit and BB fish.

Flop. SB makes a tiny bet that BB calls. I figure I can raise and at least keep the fish in the hand. I loose the nit which is no biggie, but would have been nice to keep him around.

On the turn I do some very quick and bad mental maths to figure out betsizing to get him all in on the river, and fail quite terribly. I bet quite a bit and he runs away. I'm not sure if he would have ran away with a smaller bet or not though.

I'm kind of thinking I should have just called the nit here, hopefully for him to bet on the turn and get some more money from him. I likely have the best hand, though there are some draws I have to worry about that are in his range.

And of course I wonder about my bet sizing on the turn. Is it too much? Bet sizing is one of those things I don't seem to give enough attention when I'm actually playing.

I like the raise on the flop. There are many draws outside, so protect your hand.

On the turn I would only bet 2/3 potsize. In this spot like 0,35\$-0,40\$. If you bet 40 cent, then you has only a pot size bet left in your stack and could go all in on the river.

Hi Knyght,

Preflop: looks fine

Flop: It sounds to me like you might a bit results oriented

We should always raise here for pure value (and some protection). If either of them have a hand they will call.

The raise size is fine too.

Turn: Turn is a complete blank and I like our large bet. Villain's calling range most likely doesn't change between a 2/3 pot bet and the one you made.

Maybe if you bet 1/2 pot he calls TT/Jx but really we want max value from TP and draws.
