      So I cbet the flop and he calls so I assume he has a TP and I hit my set on the turn, should my bet on the turn be bigger? If anything it was a OESD so I watched for the cards. On the river I just bet pot and re raised because there is a draw there should I fold? I mean it was a backdoor flush and he was calling my bets?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Hello samlar,

      Preflop: If I decide to raise it here then I'd do it also bigger as I would do it with strong hands, likely 6-7BBs since we are OOP.
      Flop: CBetting such a flop makes to a lot of smaller connectors and PPs so it's totally fine.
      Turn: But here I would bet likely a bit bigger since the board is so drawy, ~$0.80.
      River: As K completes few draws I'd be cautious about our play, I'd make ~$1.40 maybe for value and fold to his shove, we are more likely beat when he decides to shove.

      Best regards.
