      Hi SpecialEdd

      I would raise bigger (4bb) as I assume most players are loose preflop.

      Cbet bigger (4bb) as you need to protect and get value from many possible pairs and draws. When he raises you I don't mind 3betting, but your low sizings were an invitation for him to do that. Therefore, bet big yourself.

      As played, I would bet/fold the turn. We can still get value from many hands (Kx/Tx/flush draws/SD+FD). If you are raised it's an easy fold as you have little to no equity to improve and are behind his value range.

      Best of luck!

      Preflop: 3-4bb raise would be good. Firstly balance isn't important at lower limits, you can raise larger with stronger hands, and secondly I think the average player is very loose so a min-raise keeps your opponent's range really wide which is not ideal if you want to steal a wide range.

      Flop: I Think the 3bet on the Flop is overplay on a 3-straight board. He could have a ton of strong hands like KQ/KJ/QJ/T9/TT/99 and all these hands have a lot of equity vs you. I would have bet larger on the Flop anyway and I would just call the raise since your hand is mostly a bluff catcher now IMO.

      Turn: Easy c/f now, even his semi bluff raises got there and you are not beating much except overplayed KQ/KJ/K8 type of hands.
