      Why only better hand?

      He could call with over pair, top pair, draw...

      well, would you call 3.05 with flush draw?... its dangerous to play like that, you force players with a draw to fold, and if someone has hit a set, he would take all money from you...

      Poker isnt about making opponent to fold, its about making them pay for trying to catch something... a bet of 2.05 would be more then enough here... somebody has 2 spades and calls? excellent!


      but as i said, its just my humble opinion

      Bojan has it, 2/3rds of pot is a good size for protecting AND getting value (its in some article somewhere), so 2 dollars is perfect on the turn.

      Hi,
      I think Bojan and Fongie are right.I have doubts about calling raise preflop because:1)you call short stack so too small implieds, 2)not often you see this in microlimits but BU can squeeze you,looks like he can do that.
      Good luck :)

      I would bet 2$ on the turn and rest on the river.
      It is not that likely that he holds flushdraw, since he´d probably lead out with that on the flop.
