      BB: $12.81
      UTG: $5.72
      Hero (CO): $19.73
      BTN: $21.09
      SB: $18.65

      Pre Flop: ($0.24) Hero is CO with Q :spade: Q :diamond:
      UTG raises to $0.48, Hero calls $0.48, BTN raises to $1.80, 3 folds, Hero raises to $4, BTN calls $2.20

      Flop: ($8.72) 4 :diamond: 8 :heart: 2 :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $5.04, BTN folds

      I think my flop betsizing is a huge mistake (despite villains current 21% overall foldflopvsCbet) Its way to big given stack:pot ratios. What do you think the best flop line is?

      (oh, villain isn't hugely bluffy, pretty low bet when checked to so its a question of betsizing)

      Hi DaPhunk,

      Preflop: I don't mind our line preflop but given we are slightly deeper and the 3-bet was larger already I would 4-bet slightly bigger, perhaps to 4.5-4.6

      Postflop: As played we have roughly $16 behind so if we bet $5 the pot is ~19 with 10 behind. So we either bet like that and shove turn or look to bet $3.5 or so and bet small turn and shove river.

      Given that you said villain is not bluffy or aggro I would not look at betting small but rather just bet ~1/2 (a bit more like 4.75 or so) and ship turn.
