      I wasn't sure what to make of his small turn bet. On the river I guessed he either had some combo draw and wasn't calling anyway or had me beat.

      How could I have played it better?

      Thanks

      Hello Jeffers16,

      You could just play it passively and Call his small bets and take the odds for OESD, raising doesn't make sense against multiway pot, hard to make them fold a better hand while they are pretty loose and ready to go to showdown.

      Best regards.
