      Hello,

      Is 4bb your standard open from BU or it's because of the blinds?

      Postflop looks fine to me. You could think of raising on the flop if you think that he won't lay down Ax but without information I like calling down.

      On the river I think it's close between raising and calling and I think we can consider putting in a small raise - like $1.2, but then we risk to face a 3bet so I think calling is fine as well.

      Best,
      Plamen

      My standart open from BU is 3bb. It's something wrong with hand converter, because MP2 limped.

      I have one question I started playing a little bit looser something like 16/14 and I'm opening 3bb from every position, is it good to open the same amount from every position? Or should I open 4bb from early and middle positions like previously, when I was playing 10/9?

      Well, I think that 3bb is fine.

      You should choose your sizings according to the range you open - for example if you open 10% from UTG then it's going to be a good idea to open 4bb since you have quite a strong range.
      And yet, if you open 65% from BU, then raising 3bb there isn't the best idea since you have quite a weak range there.

      Also, against limpers I just pot it (at least) in order to build up the pot against their weaker ranges.
