      BTN: $2 (100 bb)
      Hero (SB): $2.27 (113.5 bb)
      BB: $3.37 (168.5 bb) 24/13/af 2.7/50 hands
      CO: $2.07 (103.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:club: 3:club:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.07, BB calls $0.05

      Flop: ($0.14) 8:spade: T:diamond: T:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.08, BB calls $0.08

      Turn: ($0.30) A:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.18, BB calls $0.18

      River: ($0.66) 2:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $0.40, Hero folds

      otr i didnt bet cause i dont see value (not worst hands are calling ) or bluff i dont think he is foldin an A or better so i ch/fold against that size i probably call a small bet like 1/3 pot size

      Hello,

      Preflop raising is fine.
      Is there any specific reason to make it 3.5bb here?

      Board is not the best since it is connected and I wouldn't mind if we skip the cbet here.

      Turn gives us top pair but what worse hands do you expect to get a call from here?
      I prefer checking and reevaluating the river.

      On the river check/folding is good.
      I don't think a worse hand would call a bet or bet itself.

      Best,
      Plamen

      "Preflop raising is fine.

      i am OOP so i raise 3.5 to not let the BB have good pot odds. ( you ask me cause you think its big or small ?) . All vids articles and stuff says to raise a bit bigger from the sb. So i guess you prefer 4 x ? but does make a lot of difference?

      Well I actually prefer making it 3bb here.

      By raising in this situation we are mostly aiming at the dead money.
      If we raise smaller (like 3bb) we need less FE and also play in a smaller pot when we are OOP and have quite a weak range.
      Also in general, I don't really think that people on these stakes pay too much attention on the bet sizing - so if they want to call with a specific hand they will call.
