Howzit,
I'm wondering how i should have bet on the flop and after. Was going all in a bad idea. Thought maybe he was going for the flush. Any advice is appreciated.

Hi josh!

I think I would prefer raising larger preflop to 0.10$ I want to add 1bb whenever I am OOP to make up for our positional disadvantage. So say we make it 0.10 and we get called in two spots, the flop will have 0.30$ and I would bet flop 0.25 and we get called. OTT the pot would be 0.80$ and our stack would become 0.69$ which make a turn shove an easy bet and less intimidating as an over shove in which case we will get called with worse. We would have probably still lost the hand to Q5, but that's just unlucky as there will be worse hands they could have that we beat.

not much you can do here man except for your betsizing as geo said. plus you are playing shortstacked so with a flop like that its gonna go all in OTT.

Thanks for the review. I'll work on my bet size and thanks for the info about betting an extra bb if you are the first to act.
