      BB: $24.05 (120.3 bb)
      UTG: $12.34 (61.7 bb)

      Hero (CO): $19.70 (98.5 bb)
      BTN: $19.50 (97.5 bb)
      SB: $32.94 (164.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A Q
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.60, BTN calls $0.60, 2 folds

      Flop: ($1.50) 2 8 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.90, BTN calls $0.90

      Turn: ($3.30) 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.60, BTN calls $1.60

      River: ($6.50) 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.80, BTN calls $3.80

      $14.10 pot ($0.70 rake)
      Final Board: 2 8 2 7 3
      Hero mucked A Q and won $13.40 ($6.50 net)
      BTN showed 9 9 and lost (-$6.90 net)

      I'm not thrilled with bet sizes. Flop is ok, T should be 2/3 for value vs overpairs with :heart: and R I just bet standard 1/2.

      He snapped R so I knew I could get much more. Was thinking of beting $5 but I'm not sure I get many calls. If he has QQ+, he going broke preflop/flop. If he has 99-JJ he certainly calls $5. He's also calling with smaller flushes. Only things he folds are TP here I guess. Just sucks.

      Hi Y,

      You are right about your sizings. On the flop I would go for 1 actually and continue from there. 1sb extra on the flop gets you quite a bigger pot by the river.

      I would bet 1 on the flop, 2.50 on the turn and then about 6 on the river. Notice how changing your sizing only slightly allows you to easily bet 6 on the river. Ofc, the key is the turn sizing but that 1sb on the flop is worth a couple of bbs on the river sizing.
