      Hi Cuvash,

      Preflop: looks fine but this deep I['d add 1-2 BB to our raise

      Postflop: I don't mind a cbet here but I prefer making it 60c or so. Half pot will get us called more often, especially against fish.

      AS played I would not bet the turn for a few reasons:

      1) Our equity did not improve and we have few outs
      2) The board did not change so it's hard to imagine villain folding a lot of hands.

      Why do i need to add big blinds to raise, does deep stacks effect something?

      First, you are raising for value so we want to raise more for value in general (vs fishy guys). Because we are deep we want to raise bigger because there's more to play for postflop.

      You can't just as easily put a lot of money in there, especially if you start betting too small early on.

      Common rule for TAGs is 4bb+1bb for every limpers, usually you can add 1bb there, if you are OOP.
