      UTG: $7.63 - VPIP: 23, PFR: 11, 3B: 6, AF: 2.0, Hands: 246

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is BB with K :spade: K :club:
      2 folds, BTN raises to $0.15, 1 fold, Hero raises to $0.58, BTN calls $0.43

      Flop: ($1.18) 5 :club: 6 :heart: 9 :heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.85, Hero raises to $3.48, BTN folds I expected him to bet ALL his range. Board is very draw-heavy, so ch.r is my line, faster way to get in money.

      Hi Imimba,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: I don't mind the ck/raise here even if we can't expect him to bluff a lot because we know that he is very likely to bet his 1p hands. The ck/raise is a bit on the bigger side though because we do want to have villain make a mistake (either call or shove light). Making this big sends out one message: we have a hand.

      What would you prefer, ch.r to 2$? I mean, it's the same, I obviously not going to fold the hand. Maybe it even shows more strength, raising so little

      Is it the same?

      How would you treat a smaller raise versus the one you made? Would you be more inclined to call/reraise a smaller raise or a bigger one (on this board)?
