      So I found that one of my leaks is that I take medium strong hands to showdown where they end up to be second best. I am trying to fix this but I dont want to go at the other end where I will be folding the best hand often.

      EDIT: I just realised I had an almost identical hand in my "For review" folder. I will post it below the first one to have a look.

      Hello,

      Preflop raising is fine here. Is this your standard sizing 4bb?

      Why do we cbet so small on the flop? I'd go for $0.25-$0.27 here.

      Betting the turn is close but if you expect him to call here with any Ax I like betting and also you could go for $0.5.
      When he raises folding is fine.


      The AK hand looks fine too, and I'd go for bigger bets on both flop and turn.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Hi again plamen.

      I would usually bet 3bb from all positions and do it 4bb on sb vs bb.
