      Why is hero min-raising?

      I am still a beginner and learning when to raise/bet and how much etc so I made a mistake on the flop when I raised.

      However in the end he had a set of 9's so I had the worst hand on the flop, other then the bad mini-raise, was it worth going all in?

      Hi Mat,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Generally speaking you want to stay away from the minraise and use a 2.5-4x raise size.

      The raise size depends on many factors such as bet size used by opponent, the opponent information, board texture, etc.

      In this case villain is betting 1/2 pot and the board is somewhat connected so I would prefer to raise this to 30-35c.

      What does villain raises to because I don't think thats correct (or did he min raise back)?

      If he raised small we shouldn't shove and make such a strong move but rather raise smaller to lets say another 2.5x-3x.
