      I bet slightly more than pot size on the flop, because of the drawy board, and two opponents. Is this good here, or does it cost me money?

      Is this reraise too much? I would like him to stay in, but at least I avoid any bad beat, and the pot is quite nice anyway.

      Hi aciddrop!

      Hand 1) Nice hand! I would have played it the same because of the resons you already mentioned: draw heavy board and two opponents.

      Hand 2) You don't even reraised potsize here. A potsize reraise would have been $7.25 if I calculated it correctly (potsize plus twice the amount you would have to call). So I think $6.25 is the correct amount.

      Good luck at the tables!
