      He's a huge fish.
      Here I'm just wondering about the sizes.
      It's quite difficult for me to do raises when people microbet compared to pot size.
      Should I ignore their ridiculous micro bets and keep raising at proper sizes or should I raise according to theirs so that they don't insta-fold?
      In the doubt I did something in the middle.

      Just raise/bet according to pot and stack sizes. Their bet doesn't matter AS much, especially when very small. In this case I think your flop raise is close to OK (maybe 1bb bigger) and turn should be bigger to prepare river for a shove.
