      turn bet is a waste imo, since he called a relatively dry flop, if i bet probably more, but c/c is better here on the turn?

      i think a smaller raise often also does the trick, 3$ should be enough, agains a 3-bet call and look at the turn, against a flop call i would cb on the turn. good line?

      1) $5 on the flop are ok as well.

      2) i wouldnt play HU. the rake is too high ... I'd also c/c the turn but that really depends on your image and the last few hands if youre playing hu.

      3) flop and turn are fine. but i am folding preflop. you are OOP and your implied odds are not high against a midstack who could lots of hands from the button and most of the time wont give you any money if you hit your draw.

      4) $3.5 is ok. question: yes.

      5) $3 on the flop. against unknown on nl25 i would then not push the flop. you actually should fold here with very decent odds and a high probability that he will lead out on the turn again.
