      Wasn't sure what to do here agianst this opponant. If he had raised 4bb like normal would have folded. He raised different amounts each time. Was the cold call pre-flop a mistake? Should I have checked behind on the turn? Min raise confused me, then I mis-read not Cbetting as weakness. Where did I go wrong pre-flop or post-flop?

      Thanks

      Hi Jonnyquest,

      Removing results from your HH gives you the optimum verdicts from players :)
      The results doesn't matter, it is all about how you played the hand.


      I generally ignore minraise on micro limits so I reraise this all-in since a genuine 3bet raising size would be $1.75-ish and since you have $3.95 left, you are committed postflop anyway.

      Then I want to shove it preflop to see 5 cards and possible have the best equity there
