      CO Bast_Imret ($9.76)
      BTN helios 24 ($3.89)
      SB mmmabril21 ($6.19)
      BB Hero ($2)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.15, 6 players) Hero is BB J:spade: Q:heart:
      3 folds, helios 24 calls $0.10, mmmabril21 calls $0.05, Hero raises to $0.30, helios 24 calls $0.20, mmmabril21 calls $0.20

      Flop: J:club: 6:diamond: 3:club: ($0.90, 3 players)
      mmmabril21 checks, Hero bets $0.50, helios 24 raises to $1.70, mmmabril21 folds, Hero goes all-in $1.20

      MY original plan was to go for steal but as seen I got called and hit TPGK.
      I think my action here was correct but would like to hear your opinion.

      thx

      Hi,

      If you steal, than make the bet bigger. You are going to play OOP when called. So make it 0.60 or 0.70.
      If you get called, shove the flop with TPGK.

      As played
      Bet bigger on the flop, make it 2/3 PSB and call the AI as he could get aggro with FD's.

      T.

      Raising preflop is fine but please do make it bigger because the bigger you make it the bigger the chance someone will fold their hand hence you stealing

      As soon as someone calls I will shove most of the times as a cBet because the pot becomes $1.3 and your stack like that as well

      Best regards,
      Gerv
