Hello poker players!

I question if I played my hand correctly. My pre-flop bet size was a bit too low and it got me in an awful position post-flop.

All insights are welcome, thank you (poker player) in advance

Yep. Bigger sizing pre ($.10 - $.12). We should be raising his flop donk and barreling turn and river.

As played, shove the turn over his second barrel.

His river sizing is a bit gross but I think you have to call.

Hi Awwesome,

I agree on sizing the raise bigger pre, I like about .12c here for pure value. Post flop donk bet like this is often 1 pair or a draw, I don't mind raising or calling here in position, generally preferring to raise though. I would definitely raise the turn bet if I hadn't raised the flop. Since I'd normally like to make it about $1, but he's only got $1.42 total, putting him all in on the turn is fine imo, I expect random unknowns at 2NL to call off with plenty of worse hands.

Thank you for answering! I was thinking his bet on the turn was weak, so I didn't want to fold the river, but I should have raised him already! Thank you again for helping everyone out! Love this site
