      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.
