      Hand recorder for this hand: SideKick

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with K:spade: , J:heart:
      SB posts small blind ($0.01), BB posts big blind ($0.02), 2 folds, Hero raises for $0.06, MP2 calls, MP3 calls, 4 folds

      Hero bets $0.20, MP3 folds, Hero gets uncalled back ($0.20)

      I didn't raise enough preflop, and maybe the turn wasn't as high as it should have been, but comes the river and all of a sudden I am easily in danger due to the straight and flush possibilities.. dangerous raise?

      It could be ok to open 3x pre, but I prefer to use 4x on FR games.

      Post-flop.. Just bet 2/3 on flop and turn, if you bet so small with hit you lose a lot of value.

      Hi Mat,

      Preflop: This is a bit light given the position you are in and at these limits you want to raise bigger in EP/MP.

      Postflop: As played why are you betting so small? Why are you betting less than 1/3 of the pot?

      Same for the turn, why such small bets? You are giving them great odds to chase weak draws and lose a ton of value from made hands.

      So bet 2/3 and go from there,

      If I bet so big I'm more likely to lose a lot as well so that's what scares me, and for the past month I been making raises like this (bad I know) so it is a habit.
