    If you're going to steal from the Small Blind, I'd make it slightly bigger than a minraise because if you get called, you'll have to play the pot OOP. Therefore you want to make it more expensive to call. I normally make it 2.5x or $0.12 in this case.

    I'm not sure why you bet pot on OTF. If you bet something like $0.13, his action will be identical to if you make it $0.21. You might as well achieve the same results for a cheaper price.

    I'd call the raise like you did, you've also got some backdoor straight equity as well as the flush draw.

    OTT I'd play it like you did, although I think the villain very much likes his hand judging by the bet sizing.

    A very interesting river turned up. I think villain's most likely holdings are some two pair, most likely T9, or a set (very likely 55, I think he'd raise 99/TT Preflop). He could also have QT or Q9 but this is relatively unlikely as you have a Q blocker. Other possibilities are J8 or a missed flush draw. I think he'd check back Tx or QJ.

    You're getting slightly worse than 2.5-1 on a call which means you have to be correct ~41% of the time for this call to be profitable. I think this is really close. If you think villain is capable of calling preflop with T5 or 95 and/or you think he'd play a missed flush draw this strongly, then I'd call. Otherwise against an unknown villain who's showing such strength, I doubt we're good 41% of the time.

    I wrote the above before I saw what you did on the river - that's really spewy I'm afraid. You're not achieving much by raising here other than charging yourself extra when he does have a better two pair+.

      One thing that I noted in several of your recent posts is you are happy to raise pre and call 3 bets.

      Think you should be looking at this as there could definitely be arguments made for raising bigger pre, and 4 betting.

        Um, pot lays a price that translates to 29.1%. Villain would have to overbet the pot for us to ever need more than 33% equity.
        I check-call there, but I think we won't be good much more than 30% of the time.
