      I do it the same as you against most opponents because the board is quite dry. I would vbet bigger on the river.

      Hello newsat,

      Preflop: Actually I'd even prefer to raise it up from this position rather than limp. We might as well take the pot down easily and also have a bigger pot postflop when we do hit. Plus we might take the pot down having the initiative.

      As played
      Flop: Since the pot is that smallish and our plan is to get his whole stack then I'd rather raise it here since we played that passively preflop.

      As played if flop was called
      Turn: You could even raise bigger here, ~$3,50 or something similar.

      As played if turn was raised smaller
      River: I'd even consider Betting bigger here, he will very often Call us anyway even if we bet into him bigger, ~$5.

      Best regards.

      How much raise is good ? 2/3 pot size ?

      You could even just pot it if he seems to be kinda bad player so about ~$1,20.
