      i don't know your basic bet strategy, but i'd bet more on flop. 0.6 maybe

      Hi,


      You have a huge draw and the guy is a bad halfstacker you should be happy to go broke if he wants to, you just need a general idea of how he's playing to tailor your bet sizing to your needs.

      For example if he's really aggressive postflop, bet bigger to force him to raise bigger so you can get more money when you bet/jam on him and he folds. If he's a huge calling station you only need to bet big enough to get the stacks in by the river when you hit, since you have very little fold equity most of the time. If he's somewhere in the middle and usually like to call the flop / fold the turn, bet bigger on the flop since he'll call always and then bet 1/2ish on the turn since he'll fold most of the time anyway, you'll still end up with close to a psb on the river. Just some stuff to think about.


      Hope it helps.
