Hi,
What do you think of my bet sizing? I think I should have made an over bet of at least 2$ on the flop to see where I stand and maybe take it down there. If he called maybe follow a check/fold approach on later streets. As played I feel it was a fold on the turn.
It was Villain 5's first hand no stats.
Thank you

Hi Invoked79

I would not limp the SB with 88. I would open to 3x.
As played, I think I prefer a big x/r; enough to be able to jam the turn on a blank.

I see what you mean. Interesting approach. Check raise and then jam on a blank. The connected monochrome board felt like bad news at the time, against someone with zero info I guess.
Thank you for your input
