      Hello XyRo,

      Flop: I would raise it even bigger here ~$1.
      Turn: And as well raise it bigger ~$2,20 or something similar.
      River: Seems to be fine, he will anyways have hard time calling with a lot worse vs our 2street raise. He might even try trapping us.

      Best regards.
