      I would bet bigger on flop and turn - 3/4 should be ok, you need to protect this hand and also you get more value.
      On the river I think blockbet would bet ok, like 1/3 of the pot.

      Hello cutegoldfish,

      Bet ~$0,80 on flop & bet the turn for ~$1,70. Also about the river bet is kinda fine, but I'd make the block-bet a bit smaller, ~$2 and likely fold to the raise, he will very often have a stronger hand there.

      Best regards.
