      I decided that I would bet/fold flop. CO called and I thought that I should check/fold turn, but he bet so smalled, so I called and I have to call river for pot odds.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 2:spade: , 2:heart: . CO posts a blind of $0,10.
      6 folds, CO checks, BU folds, SB raises to $0,30, Hero calls $0,20, CO folds.

      Flop: ($0,70) 4:heart: , 2:diamond: , 8:diamond: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0,40, SB raises to $1,00, Hero raises to $9,73 (All-In), SB folds.

      Final Pot: $11,43

      I think that I overplayed my set. 2,5$ re-raise should be enough and if non diamond comes then push on the turn. I hoped that he had overpair, he put me on the draw and he would call my overbet on the flop^^

      Hi Kaitz20!

      Hand 1) nice hand. He could also bet a three or 44/55/77 here.

      Hand 2) I think all-in to represent a flush draw as well as a raise to $2.50-$3 should be ok here.

      Good luck at the tables!
