      Hi, I nearly have enough money to move up the limit finally because I try to post hands and learn from them!

      This person is a very loose aggresive gambler that mainly calls raises in order to HIT the flop.

      I put him on KQ or AK! but basically he could have anything...

      Are my bet sizes ok?

      And im right in saying the size of his stack, the board and my made hand - I couldnt have gotten away on the flop right ?

      Thank you for the evalutions, it really helps!

      Nothing wrong with your play, might have made it a bit bigger preflop myself but no big deal. There is no way we're ever folding TP2K for a pot sized bet against a shortstacked "gambler". The only thing we might do differently is to check to him instead if he's aggressive enough to shove a lot of hands that he would fold a to c-bet jam from us. If he's just fit-or-fold postflop and you think he'll check back when he missed, the only move is to jam yourself. NH.

      Hope it helps.
