      Formatted by pokercopilot.com - Mac OS X hand history analysis and tracking

      Stacks:
      UTG - UTG ($5.10)
      UTG+1 - UTG+1 ($11.51)
      MP - MP ($10.20)
      CO - Hero ($10.14)
      BTN - BTN ($4.00)
      SB - SB ($8.13)
      BB - BB ($4.24)

      No info on the villain, only his stack that suggests he's not a pro.

      Preflop: ($0.14, 7 players) Hero is CO with A:heart: K:club:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, 1 fold, SB calls $0.36, 1 fold

      Flop: 4:heart: 5:diamond: 3:spade: ($0.90, 2 players)
      SB bets $0.40, Hero calls $0.40

      Here I thought the call was good since he would mostly be betting with overpairs, and I had 6 outs to TP and a gutshot.

      Turn: A:diamond: ($1.70, 2 players)
      SB bets $0.80, Hero raises to $2.40, SB raises to $4.00, 1 fold, Uncalled bet of $1.60 returned to SB

      After he re-raises me, I guess I'm not winning this hand with TP. But I don't know if in this case I'm already pot committed and should go all in...

      Hi MrBeast,

      Preflop: looks fine but why do we open 4x from CO. Do we have huge fish behind or do you open larger for value (bet sizing tell)?

      Postflop: That small donk can also be weaker Ax and other random hands. It shouldn't be just overpairs.

      If we raise the turn I think it's hard to let it go however I don't think we need to raise the turn because on such a scare card we can scare off a lot of weaker hands.
