      Without stats I think you should go all in. It's a made hand, second best.

      But I'm also curious as to what the judge will say.

      Hi Burek,

      You c-bet way too less to make it profitable if you miss.
      Bet more like $1.25 as you are now like betting 1/2 pot which isnt really profitable on micro's.

      Also preflop, I even do not raise 3.5bb from CO, 4bb is ok on Nl25 and gets you the most value out of your hand in the long run.

      Postflop: see above
      Turn: Ok
      River: A Straight is a made hand so I will call this one, noting his betting pattern is a must

      Cheers

      I agree I should have bet more this time because of the drawy board, but usually I bet slightly more than 1/2 the pot, it's what undercover82 did mostly in his videos and besides usually it gets the job done. Mostly I get reraised or folded. For this reason I decided to keep 1 or 2 BBs with c-betting, but that's ofcourse no excuse to bet 1/2 on drawy board.

      About CO raise I think 3,5 is working just fine for me atm becaue tables are very tight and I have to steal often, on the other hand I do change my playstyle at the weekends. :)

      Equilator says Hero has 64% equity against a random hand (36%) on the river (Hero:Villain is 2:1).
      The pot odds are 2,2:1.

      So if my calculations are correct, you have -EV against a random hand, not to mention that hands are rarely random.

      i know posting odds calculations is beginner, but i'm a beginner too :)
