      Hello coach and viewers!

      As I'm in posittion and the villain has shown some wild aggresive play I call his small raise on the flop.

      Should I have bet the turn? I don't have a good read on the villain yet.

      Is my raise on the river too big?

      (I probably should have raised pre-flop. I hadn't realised the table had grown so small or that the CO hadn't called but posted dead money.)

      Hey DraakG,

      Preflop I'd consider raising it up to $0.10. Sometimes you take the pot uncontested, other times you may isolate yourself vs the SB in position.

      On the flop you should seriously consider folding your QT vs check-raise. You basically have a bluff-catcher, villain is not raising worse for value in most cases.

      On the turn your primary goal should be to get to showdown after facing flop check/raise. Checking back is fine, but a small bet of <1/2 pot may help you to protect your hand from any of villains flop bluffing range.

      River is fine but maybe a little ambitious. I'd raise to like $1.10.
