      Preflop, I don't like raising small suited connectors against limpers from the SB, I would just complete here. If you want to raise, raise 4xbb+1bb per limper = 5bb here. I think you should read the basic articles regarding Preflop Play to understand this better, since you haven't raised correctly in any hand yet.

      Flop: Bet 3/4th pot instead, you don't want to only potbet the nutz and bet normal with air - balance your continuation bets.

      Turn: If you raised 5bb preflop and cbet normally on flop it would be easy, just put him all in here so you don't have to face an ugly raise. I think he will pay you off with single card straights here too (with 6 or A) which you both beat. You're not always up against the flush.

      So basically, please read the articles again because it is crucial that you understand them :)
