      SB: $2.78 (139 bb)
      BB: $2.24 (112 bb) 17/12/PF agg 31-21-20/fld cbet 14/WTSD 21/272 hands

      Preflop: Hero is MP with K:diamond: J:spade:
      Hero raises to $0.06, CO calls $0.06, BTN folds, SB calls $0.05, BB calls $0.04

      Flop: ($0.24) 6:club: J:diamond: 5:diamond: (4 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $0.17, CO calls $0.17, SB folds, BB calls $0.17

      Turn: ($0.75) J:club: (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.55, CO folds, BB calls $0.55

      River: ($1.85) A:club: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1.22 and is all-in, BB calls $1.22


      on the flop i could cbet bigger being multiway like .20 or so

      turn we improved so i bet on the bigger side to get the money in against worst Jx

      river even though the backdoor flush completes i dont put my opps in an backdoor FD + the A hits his range all the Axdd so i think i have to value push . Ok overall ?

      Hi.

      Preflop: While 3BB is standard raise size at higher limits, I think you might want to open 4BB from earlier positions, just to gain more value. The biggest mistake that nanostakes players make is that they call with too much crap. We also want to raise larger to discourage multi-way calling.

      PostFlop: Standard 3barrel for value. No reason to check at any point in time.

      Yes i used to open 4 X or 3,5 X from earlier positions . But on videos or on some coaching . Coaches open 3 Xbb on the micro stakes nl2/5/10 . For them its probably ok cause they are more post flop experienced?

      Post-flop experience helps, so one can open 3bb. Also, if you play a bit looser, then you should open 3x

      In general, the tighter your ranges, the larger you want to raise. What you could do is to open 4BB in early positions, and maybe you can open 3 or even 2.5BB in BU and CO, depending on how wide you are opening.

      It also depends on the aggression levels of the players at the tables. If they are hardly 3betting anything then it's usually better to use 3bb open raise sizes. but if people are 3betting a lot then going even smaller makes more sense. If people are ultra passive, then 4bb is fine too.
