      Hi,
      First of all, can I attempt to steal at all with a call from this opponent in front? Even if he calls my raise, there's a good chance I have a better hand
      Do you think I should raise on the flop? Just calling such a small bet can convince him I'm weak...
      Are raise sizes on the flop and the river ok?

      Thanks!

      Hi Yuris, you can steal on a limped pot, nothing wrong about it.
      Be aware that as the number of limpers increase the chance that you will get called increases too.
      I use to ccpf, and the call after limp stats to see if I can isolate myself against one opponent on a limped pot.

      To the hand:

      I like your line, the size of betting is fine. nice hand

      Hello,

      Just raise hardly bigger, near pot on every street. He is a fishy, he is likely to Call you anyway and just Calling looks a lot more to a nuts than raising. You could easily get more money of him, missed some value.

      Best regards,
      Rensu
