      Hello lynius,

      First of all, you have a leak in bet sizing. I'd recommend you posting more hands to get the understand and also find more of your leaks.

      I'd bet on flop bigger if I decide to bet, ~$0,25. And likely just Check/Fold the turn, he wont bet into us anyways with worse, and if you decide to bet there then do it bigger ~$0,50. As played the river bet doesn't really make sense, he will just fold non-flush hands and Call with other hands. And those hands which fold, we will win by just Checking too.

      Best regards.
