      Just curious as to wether I should have been more aggresive, knowing he was short stacked put me off.

      Nope. Don't minraise preflop, don't minraise the flop, value bet turn and river.

      Thanks, I just had this nagging feeling I should have pushed him higher on the turn.

      Hello Ozric90,

      And welcome to the forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future, so we will be able to help you fix your leaks and as well help move up the limits. Will be waiting for next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Preflop: Definitely make a bigger raise ~$0,90 at least. Min-raise is the worst play you could pick.

      As played
      Flop: While I don't really see the suits but when you plan to raise it on the flop then as well you have to do it bigger ~$2 would be my raise.

      As played if flop was raised smaller
      Turn: I guess I am still betting it here for value.
      River: And as well bet here for value.

      And as well add to full stack if you playing BSS.

      Best regards.
