      your bet is too small on the flop, i would make it 12 cents to fold out small pocket pairs. 6 cents is 25% of the pot and is way too small. even a hand like Ax could find a reason to call.

      and its also too small on the turn, i would bet 18 cents here at least, or check back if you think hes not folding. betting such a small size is just inflating the pot since hes almost always going to call with most of his hands and inducing him to pull a move on you like a check/raise.
