Thanks for the report. One thing I wanted to talk about: I don't think that you played this badly, but I'm not sure I agree with your flop and turn bet amounts. Assuming the lady to your left is not a blind, the pot has 575 when you bet post flop, making another bet of 250 pretty small and giving good pot odds for a draw. It won't kick out any open-ended draws, and won't give you enough information against something like 2 pair or trips. If someone has a good big draw, you'd rather just take the 575 now. If someone has a bigger hand, you want to get off of it now or at least have a chance to make that read. The only hand she'd pay you off with with a bet like that is a worse pair or worse kicker made, and that hand might pay off a bigger bet, too. Of course, you are limited partly by the size of your stack. From the sound of things, though, you had 250+350+600 + a little more left (over 1200). This makes it tough to make a big enough bet and still be able to get away from the hand if raised and you think you are beat. I think my bet would have been pretty large in that situation depending on how I read my opponent, either slightly more than the pot (600 ish) or all-in. None of this is to say your opponent outplayed you. She chased an inside straight to the river, and that was pretty loose. But remember that she also had 2 overcards, so if she had you on top pair, she had up to 10 outs. (in reality she only had 7 as you had the ace covered) PS. Take this with a grain of salt. I have no illusions about being a great poker player. But I like to think that bet sizing is one of my strengths relative to most.
