      BB: $2.12 (106 bb)
      MP: $2.01 (100.5 bb)
      Hero (CO): $2.16 (108 bb)
      BTN: $2.88 (144 bb)
      SB: $2.06 (103 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 7 6
      MP folds, Hero raises to $0.07, BTN folds, SB calls $0.06, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.16) 5 T A (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.08, SB raises to $0.16, Hero calls $0.08

      Turn: ($0.48) J (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($0.48) Q (2 players)
      SB bets $0.46, Hero folds

      Is flop call is fine with 2 backdoors? If a backdoor is only 1 out, it's all pretty sad here :f_biggrin: but I don't really know. How good is a hand like this one, only two outs?

      Cheers.

      Hello,

      Preflop raising is fine.

      On the flop I'd bet $0.1-$0.12 and fold to a raise. I don't really like calling here with 7 high even with the backdoors.

      As played on the flop, turn and river are good.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Hi Plamen,

      Why would you bet 10-12 cents?

      I try to keep all my cbets of the same size, so on a dry board HU I always bet ~60-70% of the pot (because I bluff a lot here). If on an ace board I start betting less with AA and more with 67, I might start being exploited one day.

      I personally don't like these half pot bets in single raised pots.
      I do feel like they just don't give me as much credit as they would give me if I bet 2/3 for example.

      Of course this isn't a mistake and if you think that they don't really care about sizings at all (which is most likely to happen on NL2) you could go for 1/2 when bluffing and 2/3-3/4 for value but for sure keeping your bet sizings all the same is a good idea and this will pay off in the future.
