      Hi.

      preflop: how wide are you opening from the BU? How many % of hands? I think a 4BB open is a little too large. Probably making it around 2.5-3BB (3bb is more appropriate in lower limit games where the games are more passive).

      With weaker and wider ranges, you should use smaller raise or bet sizes as a general rule of thumb.

      Flop: Looks fine - Value betting against AX and also betting for protection

      Turn: I think you can bet here again for thin value. Since value is thin, half pot is good. Vs the raise I think you are crushed so easy bet/fold here.

      Thanks.

      my VPIP on BU is around 50% and I somehow change opening from 3BB to 4BB + 1BB per limper however from time to time I open with 6BB or 7BB with premiums, especialy when its folded to me on BU.

      Betting 1BB more for value, isnt that
      correct, villain will often call with all the crap just to "get" me on a bluff squezzing.

      And I watched preflop betting sizes in a Blackrain dragthebar.com videos.
      Let me know

      I don't mind increasing your raise size in BU with my strong holdings if there is a big fish, or if both players are loose and bad. 77 doesn't really qualify as a strong hand though.

      50% is kind of wide, so as long as your standard raise size is between 2-3bb i think that's fine. 4bb is too large for my liking in general, so that should only be some sort of adjustment to bad players in the hand.

      Thanks.
