      Hi again, guys.
      what was I supposed to do different?
      I only minraised on the turn, because I wanted him to call or move in...

      You played it well. You just had a bad beat.

      About the raise on the flop, it doesn't really matter, because he had $0.89 more then you raised. So the maximum raise there was $6,89.

      PS: That guy is clearly a fish. Follow him around :)

      That was my point, too. I wanted him to have thre buttons to choose from (fold, call, raise) instead of only two (fold and call) and give me an extra 17% chances of him putting his money in... (in a very simplified system)...

      Please don't pose the results.

      Preflop: Raise it up to 0.5$ pf.

      Flop: Make it 2.1$ on the flop to give him ever worser odds to call with a draw, and to shove turn easily.

      Turn: Just put him all in.
