      My main quesiton is if the bet on the flop was the right size?
      Also, if BU had called the MP1 AI, how should've I played the turn? Another bet to force the MP1 to either go AI or fold?

      I think flop bet is good, if Button calls the AI, I think you have to force him AI on turn as the pot is too big for you to fold compared to Button's stacksize and you might have the best hand.

      Hi Ohmu!

      Well played. You have top two pair and a very drawy board which means you have to protect your hand with a potsize bet. Since the stack from villain is not that big you have to call the all-in or push him all-in on the turn if he just calls you on the flop. Nice hand!

      Good luck at the tables!
