      BU - ( $3.34 USD ) - VPIP: 63, PFR: 19, 3B: 0, AF: 1.0, Hands: 16

      I play e hand OOP vs a Fish which I'm glad to take.

      Flop: Value bet vs Qx, Tx, 7x and so many draws. My mistake is to bet too small. Should have bet $0.30 or even $0.35?

      Turn: I don't think Ac is a particularly good card for me even though it strengthens my hand. Firstly, KJ got there. And a Tx and even Qx which will pay me off 3 streets might just pay me off twice now. However it also brings e Club draw which is still not very likely, I think there's still lots of value in draws, Qx and floated Ax hands so I bet big.

      River: All draws missed, he's a fish and I have pot size bet left so I decided to shove and hope he calls me light. He had a good hand though. Did not think at that point that he might have AT or QT as I felt he would have played them more aggressively.

      Hi Cheekopeh,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Since we are looking to go for 3 streets of value we should size our bets better. The only spot where we can actually make a significant change would be on the flop where we can bet bigger and thus make the pot bigger for the later streets.
