      Hi,


      Stick to the raise of 4bb preflop, or whatever your standard is, for all your hands. If you don't, people will pick up on it and avoid your good hands every single time, which is very bad for you. The only reason to raise more would be if you're confident that there are really bad players behind you that don't care at all about bet sizing. If that's the case, don't be shy and pump it up even more.


      On the flop, raising is good but you want to make it bigger, like at least 4x his raise since he didn't even bet half the pot. You want worse hands to pay you off, whether they are worse made hands or draws. As played on the flop, your opponent has to call $0.08 to win a pot of $0.45, meaning he is getting odds of more than 5:1, exactly what he needs to try and outdraw you if he happens to have 98, which allows him to play perfectly with that hand.


      Hope it helps.
