      SB ($48.75)
      BB ($33.55) 35/11/1.9/31 on 409 hands
      UTG ($20.80)
      Hero ($75.45)
      CO ($15.85)
      BTN ($49)

      Dealt to Hero 8:heart: 8:club:

      call, Hero raises to $2.50, fold, fold, fold, call, fold,

      FLOP ($5.75) 4:spade: 8:spade: 3:club:

      BB bets $2, Hero raises to $9, BB calls $7,

      TURN ($23.75) 4:spade: 8:spade: 3:club: K:diamond:

      check, Hero bets $11, BB calls $11,

      RIVER ($45.75) 4:spade: 8:spade: 3:club: K:diamond: A:spade:

      BB bets $11.05, Hero calls $11.05,

      How much to raise on flop? Then how much to bet on turn?

      I want to get called but don't want to give good implied odds to villain's possible draw by commiting myself on the next street to every card. I think it's quite a common situation and i usually have problem to find the right bet/raise size to balance it.

      (With my flop raise here, i think i should have just pushed on this turn, cause with $11 i gave enough odds for the fd to call.)
