      Hello Filipstan,

      First of all your raise on turn is just too small, I'd raise there ~$2. And on river we would have much bigger pot might even consider shoving. As played I'd still bet like $3 sometimes when I see the opponent being very bad and going to showdown a lot I might even consider just shoving directly when I put him on some strong hand. Although this situation I guess I'd just bet like $3. Overall made a big mistake not raising enough on turn and would have got A LOT more value.

      Best regards.
