      i would bet a bit more on the flop. a push is possible also but i think i would bet ~3$ and go all in on the turn

      well, turn card here reminds the importance of protection against flush draws, I wouldn`t push here though.
      so I agree with 3$ bet, even though it won`t change anything in this hand, I guess the goal here is to make them pay more for their draws. for instance, if he was holding flash draw and the turn card didn`t help him so he folded to your push - you lost 50c.

      I think 2/3 of the pot, which would be about $2.75, as a normal continuation bet is correct here. A $3 bet has the advance, that you can go all-in on the turn very easy, even with a spade.
