      The bet on the flop is good. You have the nuts and need to bet now before another club scares off opponents. It's almost always correct to lead out on a multiway limped pot if you have a strong hand.

      On the turn you should bet more, to represent not having the flush and for value. Bet $0.11. When you get min raised I think it's okay to 3bet immediately because your opponent may have spiked the straight and will not fold if he has, and if he has another strong hand like a set or maybe even two pair he will not fold either. I'd bet $0.35 instead of $0.49 because it has more chance of getting called whilst still building the pot nicely.

      Hello Royaltramp,

      Flop: Bet pot to build up the pot.
      Turn: Also bet pot and try to go broke, nothing much to do here. Also you could think of raising a bit smaller since he doesn't have much left, ~$0.40 should do it.

      Best regards.
