Yes, your bets are too small. Preflop with 2 limpers in front should be to .20 - .24 (3 or 4 times the bb + 1 bb for each limper). Postflop you bet .36 into a pot of $1.12. A proper bet would be to ~.85. Same for after the turn. I normally size my postflop bets between 2/3 and 3/4 of the pot (same if I miss and cbet).

Thanks for the input. Although following your way i would've lost alot more money! :p

But you can lose when you play perfectly, i understand that, don't worry :D.

Anyone care to guess the hand i lost to?

Don't be results oriented. It matters only if you play the hand correctly every time. Also how could you have lost any more $$ on this hand? Hero is all-in [$0.87 USD]

With the number of players in the hand you could have lost to anything. A3, 58, or a random J.

With reads putting in a LARGE 4th bet here wouldn't have been a bad idea. No one has really shown great strength so I'd think my Tens are likely the best hand preflop but not a hand I'd like to play against a group of people.

Yeh, i was all in, but the bets i would've made flop + 4th street would've been called by him. He flopped a set with pocket 4s.

what were the stack sizes pre flop???

The flop seems fine

I'd much rather check behind on the turn however, we don't want to bloat the pot with what is now 2nd pair especially with the turn card being a heart. If villain has ah picture, they have like 17 outs, so we would require a pot size bet to give improper odds to call, but in doing that, we basically commit ourselves to the hand with 2nd pair

on the river, as played (since you have bet the turn) i check behind on that river

If you check behind on the turn however, and are checked to on the river, i think bet/folding is a viable option. Lead out for about .60, and fold to a re raise

45s is what beat you correct? This is the value of playing hands like 45s i position.

I'd say a set of 8's.

bet more on the flop. Check turns and rivers with what is now a medium strength hand. Betting the river is particularly awful since you won't get any action from hands that you beat and get called by all hands that beat you.

Yea raise more preflop and bet more on flop. Check turn, but even if you decided to bet turn for some reason you have to check the river. Once your flop bet was called, you really want to see showdown as cheap as possible, especially with the turn being a heart.
