      BB: $1.03 - VPIP: 52, PFR: 7, 3B: 0, AF: 1.5, Hands: 29
      UTG: $11.71 - VPIP: 27, PFR: 27, 3B: 0, AF: 0.0, Hands: 11
      Hero (MP): $5.00 - VPIP: 23, PFR: 19, 3B: 8, AF: 4.1, Hands: 17678
      CO: $4.08 - VPIP: 17, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 0.0, Hands: 12
      BTN: $4.16 - VPIP: 38, PFR: 18, 3B: 9, AF: 1.5, Hands: 34
      SB: $12.62 - VPIP: 12, PFR: 8, 3B: 7, AF: 0.0, Hands: 83

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is MP with A :spade: K :diamond:
      1 fold, Hero raises to $0.17, CO calls $0.17, BTN calls $0.17, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.58) J :diamond: 4 :diamond: A :diamond: (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.55, CO folds, BTN folds

      Okay, so we have nothing to protect our hand against, and potting here is just isolating ourselves against better.

      But how much should we rather bet? 70%, as our standard CB? Maybe even 60% to induce some more FD calls?

      Hello,

      Preflop raising is fine.

      On the flop I think you could make it a little bit less - $0.45-$0.5 but this is just fine.
      I like to bet close to pot size on these monotone boards so I don't mind your play here.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Hi Plamen,

      I like too :) But in this case it's redundant. Is it a deception thing that we still bet close to the pot, so we don't give thinking oponents info that we have a good diamond?

      ...if I was playing against such opponents, I'd be better off switching the table anyway :f_biggrin:

      So, if we have a good diamond we should bet less?

      Why not we charge his weaker draws and made hands more + build the pot and if we hit we can take more value?

      Yeah, maybe you are right. On NL5 2nd best FD can call even a pb one street.
