      Hello foolboydesire,

      I'd raise the flop a lot bigger ~$0,40 and as well I'd even bet bigger on turn ~$0,55 at least. But as played the river I'd bet like $0,70 for value to let him Call with some pairs or maybe sets or such hands. It will be hard for him to Call anyways with a lot worse, therefore rather keep it small and we could easily be against an A.

      Best regards.
