    Hi MonoPolygamy!

    Yes, the bets in this hand are not very good. If I have a pair and want to try to setmine, I need to have 15X the bet in my stack and all of the opp's stacks.... this is not the case when the opp bets 360, so I cannot call preflop. I need to raise or fold.

    Postflop, bets need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture. With 4 or more opps in the pot, I can't bet less than a pot-sized bet and since this pot-commits me, if I have chips left after the flop (shouldn't happen), I need to shove the flop.

    The key here though is to shove or fold preflop due to not having enough chips to setmine.
