    No.

    Raise more pre, at least 3.5x.
    Raise the flop don't call.
    Raise more on the turn, your itty bitty raise gave them ~4:1 to call.

      +1umbup: Joe's right on target. Every bet was too small. John (JWK24)

        ye i guess thats a mistake i see myself making lately, not protecting my made hand enough. i think the reason behind that is im scared to not get as much value as i can out of those hands (which doesnt really make sense) and im too greedy for bluff attempts which occur a lot at those stake. can turnaround sometimes like this one.

          The key is to keep all of your bets (valuebets and bluffs) the same amounts. That way your hand is concealed and the opps won't be able to get a read on you. Also, the bets need to be sized so that the opps are getting the wrong price to draw. By giving them the right odds, they expect to gain chips by calling. If I think I'm ahead, I want them paying a price where they expect to lose chips to me on average.

            yes from watching it myself it looked to me like he was bluffing with the hopes of a straight draw what he obviously hit, while you was never really giving any impression you had a hand
