      Hello BigBetBilly,

      Good to see new names posting. :) Hopefully we will see more hands from you and try to find your leaks.

      Flop: You may even raise bigger on flop, ~$1 since the board is way too drawy.
      Turn: I'd even Bet bigger, ~$1,4.
      River: Yeah, it's kinda close and I don't even mind sometimes Checking behind and as you said sometimes it might be even safer, very thin value-betting spot. Of course he may sometimes come out with hand like 9x and etc from which we may still get value from but also he could have set on flop or even FD which also beats us.

      Best regards.
