      So This hand gave me a bit of trouble, how is Preflop?
      Flop felt standard, this guy was passive, but pretty nitty, so when the flush draw completed I felt pretty unsafe, but I made a bet out to get value from other Aces.

      I checked the river, which may have been a mistake..I am not sure of I should have went for the full 3 streets against this guy.

      When faced with a small bet I was unsure. I think he was bluffing this zero percent of the time given he was so passive, just that the bet is so small I am not sure if he was doing this with Ax.

      Let me know what you think.

      Hi Chow,

      Preflop: I would make it at least 30c OOP to two limpers.

      Postflop: As played I'd bet the flop larger for value/protection and bet turn/river as well for value versus Ax and other pairs. Villain limped BTN which means he is most likely fishy.

      As played the question is: do we beat any hands that he can valuebet this way? And i think the answer is probably so we can't really fold.

      As a side note, when you leave a reply, don't forget to hit the advise judge to take another look button.

      Would you advise, in general, adding another bb when you're oop raising. I normally would have bet 25c in that spot, I must have miss-clicked or something. Then would you recommend a potsized bet on the flop?

      I'd normally recommend 4x+1 BB per limper. And you had two limpers.

      And on the flop we can definitely bet close to pot versus two fish on such a board.
