      Its all good until the river. Pay attention to stack size, he only had 0.55 left and pot was 5.35 He isnt folding to your bet on the river.
      You might want to bet a little less on turn like 1.40 perhaps? (2/3) This because paired board and 3 hearts are scary. You might get another call this way.

      Yes, I agree with both your points. I ignored his stack-size completely.

      hi
      i dont think calling preflop is so bad in a fr game but raising is much superior because you take the pot down preflop lots of times + you have position advantage postflop if you get called .
      as played just put him all in on the river dont check it . even with biger stacks sizes bet here every time because their are lots of hands that will call you but will check behind if checked to them ( like a pair of aces or jacks)

      hi,
      Ive noticed at this limit we often cant raise with suited connectors because theres always a couple of stations who call anything + a couple of ss waiting to go all in with A high. In this situation we cant put money in the pot unless we have a good hand, this is why i like to see cheap flops like Gnostradamus did here. They will call when we hit anyway =)

      I understand that raising is better against average players but often we must switch tactics against very loose/bad players with our small pp and suited connectors.
