      Hi Xzorius!

      It would be helpful if you could post the stack sizes. On the flop I would bet more to protect the hand against flush and straight draws. Even on the turn I would bet to build a pot. If he calls you again you can make a big value bet on the river (or put him all-in).

      Good luck at the tables!

      Ok, i just checked the stack sizes:

      Seat 8: Greft ( $9.89 USD )
      Seat 9: alpski77 ( $9.40 USD )

      So pretty normal stack sizes.

      How much would you bet on the turn?

      Like 1$ or 1.25$?

      As you played it: at least $1,50. If you would have bet more on the flop you could make an even bigger turnbet. You want to build a pot and to win his whole stack. That's why you should bet big. Always remember: "Play big pots with big hands and small pots with small hands"!

      Good luck at the tables!
