      MP3 ($14.40) (51/16/1,46/39)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with T:diamond: , T:club:
      [color:#666666]1 folds[/color], MP2 calls $0.25, [color:#FF0000]MP3 raises to $1.25[/color], [color:#FF0000]Hero raises to $4[/color], [color:#666666]4 folds[/color].

      Final Pot: $5.85.

      I made it a little bit more than 3 times the original raise of MP3 because of the limp from MP2. Is this correct?

      I'm not sure if I should bet here 1/2 potsize or 3/4 potsize. So, I bet 2/3 posize ^^

      A near potsize bet seemed to me good, but should I go to an exactly potsizebet because there are two opponents and if one calls the other has very good odds to call for his straight-/flushdraw?

      What about the choosen betsizes? On the river he had 6.75$ should I overbet the pot to get him all in or should I overbet the turn? Then I could bet on the river a good amount if BU called it on the turn to get him all in?

      Hand 1: nice hand! Thats exactly why you should make it more than 3 times the original raise.

      Hand 2: I think 2/3 or 3/4 potsizebet is correct here. Flip a coin which one you want to choose :D

      Hand 3: nice hand! A near potsizebet should have the same effect as a potsizebet. You want to protect your hand and do not want to see any overcards.

      Hand 4: nice hand again! I would not overbet the pot because you want to get value from worse hands. Dont scare your opponents away.
