I would have made my bet sizings bigger pre flop. I would raise his limp to about .08c and when he raises to .12c you make it .20c which is too small and you give him odds to call I would make it around 0.35-0.40c

My PF raise must have been a miss click as I would normally make it 8c

As kiwi said 8c is standard, I don't mind 10c either if he is super loose. Against that small 3bet I would 4b to 36c and get it in pre if possible. With the board so dry I would flat here, if he has QQ/AQ/88/44 all the money is getting into the pot anyway, but if he has QK- and JJ- and he is a good player he will fold to a reraise. By flatting we give him the opportunity to fire again on the turn and then shove over the top, or if he checks we can bet and can expect him to call wider compared to a reraise on the flop which looks super super strong given dry board and preflop action.

Hi Michae,

Raise bigger pre to isolate the weak limper, .08-.10c.

Reraise bigger, the sizing is way too small and gives him a great price to go after your stack for .08c while marking you with a big hand. I think we want to be going more like .28-.30 here.

On the flop I would just raise him all in, rather than min-raise, but it's not that big a difference with only .80c behind. We are almost always ahead here though.

Thanks for all the input. I never really know how much to 4b are there any guide lines I could start with?
