      Is QJo okay to raise here pre and what about the size?

      Should I cbet here on the flop as default or is my check OK?

      I shove the turn here but I'm not sure if that's the right thing to do or just re-raise again?


      Thanks,
      Gary

      Hello Gary,

      I like raising here preflop, but I'd make it at least pot size here. My standard is to raise this much and I'd change my sizing according to different variables: tendencies of the opponent and stack sizes.

      I think we can cbet here on the flop. We have gutshot and two overcards, and a backdoor flush draw as well.

      As played, betting turn is good.
      When he minraises I like shoving. Raising smaller won't make sense, since if we make it $0.6 we put more than 1/2 of the effective stack.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Excellent, thanks again Plamen.

      Cbet on the flop would be 60-75% of the pot?

      Yeah - like $0.12-$0.14 will be enough here.
