      Just an observation , I saw you raising 5BB with AKo and here you only raise 3BB with medium PP from more or less same position . I think you should just keep a standard raising size so your hand are better disquised . If you want to vary you could maybe raise you entire range smaller from BU/CO just to make blindsteals cheaper but I don`t think varying bet sizes in the same position is a good ideea.

      Rest of the hand , I would raise it up to 4.5 on flop , minraise looks suspicious to me most of the times , and by raising more you can get your money in easier I think.

      Hi BogdanDin7,

      About your observationm you are right. I usualy bet the same amount (to disquise) but the last days i have been raising diferent amount but not depending on my hand strenght. I could bet 5BB with this 77 and 3BB with the AKo. I am just testing this random betting size (independent of my hand strenght).
      Usualy opponents read my small (3BB) bet sizes as stronger then my 5BB bets. :)

      A tell always have a counter tell.... and vice-versa....

      I would also raise on flop to ~$4.50 and shove over his raise. Otherwise, nice hand, well played.

      Best regards,

      I´d raise 4$ on the flop and likely call his 3-bet (although shove is also fine).
      Just when he has there complete bluff I want him to giv opportunity to get money all-in, thinking that he has fold equity.
      If you 4-bet, then he´d fold his bluff hands.
