      Hello,

      Flop: Your CBet is a bit too small, I would make it ~$1.75 because we would put the same amount with our Ax hand to protect from draws or even $2.

      As played
      Turn: We hit the nuts :P I am betting, ~$4 and raising to ~$22.
      River: Fine.

      Best regards,
      Rensu

      Bet flop and turn bigger. While it's true u likely have only 6 clean outs it's also true that villain will have worse pot odds on the turn if u bet flop more. If his FD misses on the turn u'll often be able to take the pot down with a semi-bluff that will kill his odds or force him into making a big mistake.

      Did you intentionally minraise preflop?

      I prefer raise pf at least 3bb
      I´d also c-bet bigger on the flop, trun and river are fine.

      Hi Guys,

      I intentionally minraise preflop because i didn't want to get called... :D

      Being the first to enter the pot and in BU, if we raise too much, it seems we are stealing. Since i was really stealing, i tried the reverse pshicology.... :)

      But i do not usualy do this...

      I agree i should have bet more on the flop.

      Regards
      JP
