      Hey!

      There are a few things you should change in this hand:

      1st Pre-flop: open raise this! It has been folded to you on the button and you have a pocket pair. Attack the blinds with ANY pocket pair! Don't just limp, try to take down the pot. Aggressiviness makes money :s_cool:

      2nd Flop: Don't minraise here. You should make a potsize raise ($0.60 in this case). You wanna build the pot up so that you can get stacks in by the river.

      3nd turn: don't check back. Your oppnent has already shown he has a hand by b/c into 2 players on the flop. He's not flding a draw here, he's not folding a 7, he's not folding anything basically. =D So just bet it!

      4th River: Bet bigger!! Don't be afraid that he folds. Even if he folds more often to a bigger bet, the extra money you get because of betting big will make up for it.

      So basically, be more aggressive! And make larger bets! =)

      Cheers!
