[NL2-NL10] NL4 6max ATs two pair bet sizing

      Pre - standard 3BB raise from BTN
      Flop - 3/4 pot bet for value and protection as flop is draw heavy.
      Turn - I overbet the pot with the intention of bulding a pot size that would allow me to put villain all in on the river, and to make him pay too much if he's drawing. Keen to hear feedback on this approach


      OnGame - $0.04 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      SB: 70 BB (VPIP: 16.67, PFR: 16.67, 3Bet Preflop: 33.33, Hands: 6)
      BB: 102.75 BB (VPIP: 100.00, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 4)
      UTG: 118.75 BB (VPIP: 25.00, PFR: 25.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 4)
      CO: 97 BB (VPIP: 0.00, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 6)
      Hero (BTN): 115 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has T:club: A:club:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to 3 BB, fold, BB calls 2 BB

      Flop: (6.5 BB, 2 players) K:heart: T:diamond: A:diamond:
      BB checks, Hero bets 5 BB, BB calls 5 BB

      Turn: (16.5 BB, 2 players) 5:spade:
      BB checks, Hero bets 18 BB, fold

      Hero wins 15.5 BB

      Hi kiwicoach

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think the flop bet is fine and while the turn is not 100% traditional I like your approach and reasoning as long as villain is considered somewhat fishy (he did play all 4 hands without raising so far).

      However, if you are overbetting you might as well make it slightly bigger without changing much.
