      Hello,

      I'd bet $0.1 on the flop.

      On the turn I would bet around $0.2.

      As played, I am fine with shoving river.
      Villain looks fishy to me as he has 50bb and calls preflop, so I think he might have worse Ax in his range.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Thanks mate, Just want to ask the reason behind your bet sizing. Im betting .08 flop since its technically bluffing and I think villain will fold if he will regardless if the size is small, and re raise me even if my bet is bigger.. So I decided that since my cbet is for bluff to make it small there to at least save .02..

      Thanks,

      Basically, in the higher stakes you should be well-balanced with your sizings because there are players that are going to exploit you.

      Anyways, this being NL2 this isn't really necessary but it is much easier if you start building some habits from now.

      Also, from my personal experience people are quite more willing to call bets who are close to 1/2 pot so I think that the additional 2 cents are going to do the job.

      We have a decent made hand and we want to give him a chance to call with weaker hands more easily - such as 7x/PP and we could still have a less than pot size bet on the river.
