      Should I bet half the pot to not scare villains on flop? Or was it OK to protect against flush draws?

      Hello,

      Make it bigger preflop - $0.35.

      On the flop cbetting is fine and I like your sizing. Betting half pot will just result in us losing value against his draws and Ax.

      Best,
