      Hello Tim64,

      Turn: Since a lot cards can kill our action on river and we are against pretty loose Calling opponent, I'd usually bet like ~$9-10.
      River: Since AQ or maybe even a flushdraw could be easily in his hand I see that Calling here is way better than Raise since I don't really expect to opponent to Call there that often our raise, since a lot higher straights are on board and also a flush, it will be hard for him to Call worse than Qx type of hand.

      Best regards.
