      Bet the turn, you don't want him to draw out on you.
      River - too small of a value bet. Anyway I believe he had AK or lower pair.

      Hello YourDoom,

      Preflop: Since it's NL5 I'd just try to get it in here, no point to play that passively, we wont get paid anyway that much if he even doesn't hit his A or K if he has AK. Against AK we get 56% equity therefore I'd get all-in with him all day long and earn money in long run.

      As played
      Postflop: I'd definitely bet the turn for protection from overcards and likely bet river even $1 as we played that passively.

      Best regards.
