      preflop sizing should be 4bb open at NL2 IMO, players are just way too loose and we want to go for more value and also ensure that we get to isolate.

      On the flop i think betting is ok but given that it is 3way i prefer checking (unless i had a backdoor flush draw like AdQd or AcQc)

      i don~t think bluffing the turn or river is going to achieve much of anything, we did not pick up additional bluff equity or pot equity.

      Thank you again Galvin :)

      Regarding open raises, Pleno1 has suggested that I open 3x from all positions as I have just started out playing NL 6 max cash.

      Happy New Year!
