The villain had VP/PF/AS/CB 16/14/0/100 and got only 39 hands with him
...This is my first shot at 25 NL and i just want to know it would've been right 2 make this moves if i would've had a stack of 25 dollars ?

Hi dan,

You are basically playing a $25 stack this hand since that's the effective stack.

In order to make moves like this I think we want a villain who has a very wide range stealing from the SB, or a tighter range where the board texture is a bit scary to him. We don't have any reads either way here.

I don't think we should fold a pair to a single c-bet blind v blind, but calling to float is also a valid option here in position. Beyond that with little info and no bvb reads it's all a lot of guesswork really and I can't see a clear optimal line imo.

Yeah like dave said effective stacks are 25$, so it doesn't affect much besides maybe your psychology.
His CB is 100%, that's why I like the flop raise.
Now the ace on the turn is a weird card to double barrel on, but I guess our bet looks stronger that way.
