    Just spoke to a friend of mine in SO America an online pro 1/2 , 2/5 (Split knows the one i mean) and he says he's doing very well with 1/3 pot sized raises. He one of the only one doing this and has had a lot of success. 1/3 pot on three streets leaves you on the river if heads up giving 3:1. He claims this size give the most trouble to those weaker hands you want to keep in. I thought i would get some opinions.
