      Villain had VPIP of around %50, I was assuming he had hit top or middle pair. Just wondering if my bet sizing post-flop was appropriate.

      Hi.

      Because of your small F and T bets, you lost so much value.

      Here postflop, you had 55 cents of value. Let's see how much you can earn if you had bet close to pot on every street. Don't forget that BB is a fish and he's probably calling down with any top pair.

      Preflop: Raise to 8 cents, at NL2 fullring if you raise 3bb only you will get multiple callers a lot of the time which is undesirable.

      Flop: Pot will have 25 cents, you bet 20 and you get one call

      Turn: Pot will have 65 cents, you bet 50 cents and you get a call

      River: Pot will have $1.65, you go all-in and win 1.67 from your opponent

      That's easily 3X the value you would have gotten from your opponent. Ok maybe he calls less often than if you had bet smaller on every street. But do you think he calls 3X less often? I don't think so, I think he would still call down anyway with any top pair. So you are losing at least 50-60% value here.

      Thanks.
