6max 25NL, folded to my SB play
I play 6-max $25 NL ring games.
When I'm in the small blind with better than average hands like K/4, and it's folded to me, what is the proper play?
In this situation I tend to raise to $.75, which takes the pot most of the time. But my normal raise in other situations is to $1 ($1.25 if there's a limper, $1.50 if there are two limpers, etc.).
I figure that if they'd call $.75 raise they'd probably call $1, and I don't want to have too much invested if he/she does calls. But I'm also aware that it's obvious that I'm betting less than my normal amount.
Any advice on my betting pattern? It seems to work, but I'm always looking to improve.
