      Hello Filipstan,

      Preflop: Raise it bigger here, ~$0,24.

      As played
      Flop: I don't see any good reason to just Check behind here, I'd rather just Bet it and hope they are going to Call us with a lot worse.

      As played if flop was checked behind
      Turn: Depends what you do you want to achieve with that kind of raise? Induce bluff 3bet? I'd rather make just a normal raise, ~$0,60.

      As played if turn was raised smaller
      River: By raising that smallish I wouldn't even be surprised when he did raise us there with a lot weaker hand but I'd rather just Raise/Fold as you played. More often when we face a passive opponent, he wouldn't raise that way there with a lot worse.

      I don't really get your line at all, what you are trying to accomplish with those small raises.

      Best regards.
