      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (5 handed) - Hold'em Manager Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      saw flop

      BB ($26.65)
      UTG ($37.75)

      MP ($17.75)
      Gerv (Button) ($50)
      SB ($31.40)

      Preflop: Gerv is Button with A, A
      UTG calls $0.50, 1 fold, Gerv bets $2.25, 2 folds, UTG calls $1.75

      Flop: ($5.25) 7, T, 2 (2 players)
      UTG bets $2, Gerv raises $6.50, UTG calls $4.50

      Turn: ($18.25) J (2 players)
      UTG checks, Gerv bets $13, UTG raises $29 (All-In), Gerv calls $16

      Should I raise bigger at flop to grow the pot bigger and that I can maybe shove the Turn as an Overbet???

      Hi yes flop bet should be higher. Around 8$+ I think.

      Reason is I am putting villain on a draw, either straight or flush, here and by you raise your still giving him the odds to call.

      4.5 more into a 13.75$ pot is a pretty good pricing if your on a flush or straight draw.

      And precisly.. you can push the turn giving him very bad odds to make the call here.

      I'd raise to to 7$ on the flop. Your betting size on the turn is fine. I also bet/call against that guy.

      over-betting might get him to fold hands that he will call with to a standard bet.
