      Hello johny8984,

      Flop: I'd actually even bet bigger here, since the board is that drawy, ~$0,55 or something similar.

      As played
      Turn: Would also consider betting bigger, ~$1,10 to protect from any kind of draw.

      As played if turn was Bet smaller
      River: If the opponent is more passive one then Check/Folding against big bet should be doable, but if he is more likely a calling station/aggressive one then sometimes I prefer to Block-Bet/Fold myself here, ~$1. He could still have a lot weaker pairs also in his range.

      Best regards.
