      Pre, I think is fine. Bet size on flop, maybe a little bigger? Turn? Not sure. I bet because I figure he could call with an A. River I think is ok.

      Hi,

      Sure, it's okay, but it would be even better if you considered STPR and tried to go all-in on the river without overbetting, namely by betting flop and turn a bit more.

      PS: He can also call you with A6, OESD and FD, so we definitely bet here. OESD and FD part brings us to another reason to bet more btw -- protection.

      Hi Fever,

      We should definitely size our bets better.

      With 2p we want all the money in comfortably by the river but we want most of it on flop/turn where his range is the widest.

      The rest looks fine.

      Thanks for the feedback. What is STPR?

      That's how i wrote Stack to Pot Ratio (it should be SPR, I guess). You are concerned with the effective stack -- that is the smallest one, in this case yours. If you leave yourself about 70-80% of the pot on the river -- you might easily shove without generating a ton of fold equity (people don't like calling overbet-shoves with marginal hands on the river).

      PS: Pokerstrategy.com has a nice glossary here, it has the whole lot of terms.
