      I reckon I might have played the flop a bit too tight. Firstly my raise be too small. I should've shoved since the board is so drawy and I might be giving the opponent odds for drawing. Judge please lead me onto the path of enlightment! :P

      Known players:

      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (10 handed)

      MP1 checks, Hero raises $0.75 (All-In), MP1 calls $0.75.

      River: ($3.85) 7:diamond: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $3.85

      Results follow (highlight to see):

      Hero wins with two pairs, jacks and tens (Jh As)

      As you said, it's a drawy board and you have to bet for protection. 2/3 of the pot size is a good balance between value and protection, so you should have bet like 0.75$, 0.60$ is about half pot and therefore too little on a drawy board. But, since you only have less than 1,5x potsize left in your stack you should push the flop directly.

      Hello mikelstwe,

      Board is very coordinated on the Flop and therefore you should the same trick as a board for example and that's betting 2/3 to potsized, I prefer just 2/3 to $0.8

      Since that's 0.8/1.35 = 60% of your stack, go all-in instead.

      Best regards,
