      Playing at Titan NL 0.02/0.04 against all unknowns. I'm playing SSS and on a free play I flop top 2 pair. I looked back at this hand later on and realised that my bet on the flop is possibly a little small, although I wanted to get some value from at least 1 call. My question is: Could I have played this hand differently that will pay off in the long run?

      Thanks in advance.

      you say that you are betting small. I knwo the amounts are small but in pot comparaison you are betting high it looks like you are playing NL2 rather than NL4

      you are betting 1.5 x pot on flop when 0.02 to 0.04 would probably been more appropriate. on turn lets say pot is 0.12 you bet 0.06 to 0.08 therefore a fold is a lot easier to an AI.

      also for NL2 you have 50BB hardly SSS.

      on NL4 flop should be 0.08.


      if you were short stack you would have no more than $0.5 in your stack then call the AI with 2 pairs but I would not with your stack.

      I think he is playing 2NL yes so with 50bb , you are not playing SSS nor BSS

      on Titan poker, you only can play SSS on $0.05/$0.1 (NL10) and up!

      The lower limits are for BSS players :)


      As played, I would just bet pot every street and if villain raises us then shove it ;)
