      Could squeeze a extra 10c or so on the flop and turn but pretty close to perfect.

      Nice hand WP

      Agree.

      Keep in mind that our reasons for betting are:
      -we want to get value from worse hands like worse Kx and lower pairs so we want to bet not too big.
      -we want to protect our hand as much as we can so we can't bet too small either.
      -we don't want to lose too much when the opponent has a better hand and raises us.

      Your bet sizing is a good balance of these reasons imo.

      Best regards.
