      Pre Flop

      I *know* it should be 3*BB here on the open raise as its standard. The reason I raised smaller is that over the last 1000 odd hands I haven't been called much when open raising, but have been faced raised or folds a lot....With my opening range it felt better to raise smaller and lose less with the hands I fold.

      Post Flop

      The board was very drawy and I felt there was value in betting flop and turn.

      On the river I was Chk/Flding, I didn't really want to see the ace. To be honest when he show-downed I was surprised he didn't value bet it.

      Hi Phil,

      Preflop: I don't mind raising small like this if people behind us are nits or fold a lot (thus we can open a wider range).

      But if we have potential fish I like raising our standard 3x.

      Postflop: As played, vs potentially fishy guy I'd play it the same.

      On the river we rarely have much value left unless villain is a huge station.
