Hey HUSNG,

This is from $3.50 Hyper

I think I like my raise on the flop because theres a ton of cards I don't really want to see, K, Q, T, any club but I'm not sure if the sizing is good. I thought if I make it too small it's an easy call for him with any drawing hands but if I make it too big I'm going to have very little behind compared to the size of the pot if he just calls.

I was worried about him having an ace since most of them are better than mine but I think I got it into my head he most likely has a draw. But still, I think I should have folded to his jam because I'm either crushed by a better ace or if he does have a flush draw he still has a decent chance to hit his hand.

 

What do you guys think? Is the raise good or maybe flatting or choosing a different size is better? Am I right in thinking I should be folding here when facing a jam?

 

Any advice will be really helpful!

 

Thanks,

 

Steve

I definitely think it's

I definitely think it's better to flat... it's really hard for us to have an ace and villain should barrel off pretty wide as a bluff. By raising, we basically isolate his strong draws and better Ax.

Hope this helps
