      What do you think about bet sizes (too small) and checking the turn?
      Missed value?

      Hi.

      Why would you want to slowplay for no reason? You don't even have any specific reads to support this decision. We also know that this guy may be passive, given that he has an AF of 1.0 over a small sample.

      Just bet the Turn large, and bet the River again. The primary mistake that people make at lower limits is to call way too much, not bluff way too much.

      Thanks.
