      Hey golicowcy,


      I would bet out myself because you don't want to scare away your opponent with a check/raise. And I would continue aggression on the turn and river to get as much value out of villain as possible.


      Openraise is fine, but only if you oR 3big blinds other hands as well. However, after villain resteals you there's no point in 4-betting smallish, just shove as you would with any other hand.

      As played I think your checkraise in hand #1 is too small. I make it $0.75 or $1 to build up the pot quicker. I've noticed your raise sizes seem a bit small in a couple of spots in your various sample hands.

      I like 2/3rds to potsize bets in general and it might be useful for you to look up how to make a potsize raise as well. (a potsize raise gives villain 2 to 1 pot odds for a call)
