      Anon. table - no info. Probably a fish.

      Should i raise the flop/turn?

      On the river, after his small bet, i think i have a value raise. Perhaps i could go a bit bigger? I`m targeting his low overpairs.

      I don't really think there's a huge difference in ev between raising the flop/turn compared to just calling. On the river though, i'm again looking to maximize value here by just putting all the money in the middle. I think weaker players would look at their weak sizing, the fact that you rep mostly 4x by shoving and just call it off with A-high+. I would be shocked to see him folding any pair to a shove here.

      But a smaller raise is also good, but I think 15€ gets called just as often as 12,5€, so if you want to make it small, 15-16 would probably be slightly better.
