      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.20(BB) Replayer
      Hero ($46.41)
      BB ($22.83)
      UTG ($28.05)
      UTG+1 ($4.78)
      CO ($7.03)
      BTN ($24.11)

      Dealt to Hero K:spade: K:club:

      fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.40, fold, fold, Hero raises to $1.20, fold, UTG+1 calls $0.80

      FLOP ($2.60) 5:diamond: 5:club: 7:club:

      Hero bets $1.60, UTG+1 raises to $3.58 (AI), Hero calls $1.98

      68/35/1.5, f3bet 14, fcbet 46 (13) in 3bet pots, 269h

      I decided that with smaller sizing I get more calls, and he has not good implied odds anyway. Is it ok or should i 3bet to 1.6?

      cbet small also to make it look weak

      Heya,

      You can actually go with 1.00-1.10 as sizing pre if you want since he is so short imo. You steal leverage stacks easily plus it might induce a bit more often since it looks weaker.

      Postflop, you can bet very small given stacks.. I think 1 is more than enough. You want him to spazz A high or overs just because he gets the impression of folding equity.

      by betting one he will almost have odds with FD so thats why I dont do that. If this was dry then I like such small bet more.

      His flushdraw does not have that great odds since you have so many redraws plus his range will contain quite a few more non-flushdraw hands comapred to flushdraws. The times when you turn a FD and he turns a flush and get it in behind is going to be more than outweighed by the times you get it way ahead vs spews and weak hands.
