      Hello musabasjoo,

      Preflop: I'd raise even bigger for the reason that there are 2 limpers and we are OOP, ~$0,35 would be my raise.

      As played
      Postflop: I'd bet a bit smaller to make it like block-bet to have room for fold, ~$1 and fold to the raise. As played goes the same, rather just Bet/Fold. He likely has us beat.

      Best regards.
