      Overlimping 66 here is okay but its important to remember that people that limp are playing for sets, flushes and straights, and just because you get one doesnt mean the next guy didnt get a bigger one :)

      On that flop, raise a little harder. Youve raised him so he has to call 4 cents, thats not profitable and it doesnt protect you if he was semi-bluffing. If villain has 67 then the villain is going to fold wether you raise to 6 cents or to 12 cents. Might as well make it 12 cents and take money off Ax, 2pair or drawing hands.

      On the turn well, its hard to give credit for someone playing 45 very often and you have outs even if they are. So im playing bet-raise-shove. Often you are dominating 33 or A6s, A3s here.

      This. Often getting value from very weak hands will be trumped by the value you get from decent hands. Any fish with Ax there would probably call a $0.3 raise if you made it, they have top pair, and often they're not even folding it on later streets, so with a bloated pot, you get even more money. It's a lot more important to get them to call a big bet with Ax than to call a tiny bet with 3x.


      Hope it helps.
