      A raise from CO with that hand wouldn't be a mistake since you will often take down the pot pf, and even more often get to see a flop in position, with the initiative + it's good for pot-building if you should hit the flop as nice as in this case :) A limp can easily be defended too, but I would prefer a raise since you are playing shorthanded..

      On the flop I don't really like the click-raise (never likes them :P ), but it worked out for you and you stated your reasons, so I'm fine with that :)

      Turn: std

      River: It depends on the opponent (how high is his wts? and have you seen him make similar plays before)? I would probably go for a lower value bet in this case, since your line in the hand is pretty weak (low bets and raises)..

      Best regards,

      I would also raise pf against someone whose vpip is almost 50. On flop I would raise more because minraise looks really suspicious and you are likely to get called anyway. On turn and river I just make valuebets.

      Hi rubysilesia!

      As already mentioned: I would raise preflop to take down the pot right away or play in position and with initiative in a raised pot. On the flop I would definitely raise more: any draw, any two pair or set at least calls you. You want to build a pot, so do it ;) On turn and river half pots size bets should be fine.

      Good luck at the tables!

      I can't agree that minraises looks suspicious. On this limit the majority of players use click - raise (at least 70% I'd say) so a proper raise looks very strong and generates huge fold equity which I didn't want.

      You want to build a pot and you don't achieve that by doing minraises. You want to win the whole stack from your opponent, not just 1/4. If he hit something he will call your raise anyway whether it's a minraise or a bigger raise.

      Good luck at the tables!
