      Miniraises are always suspicious. There weren't many draws so I was thinking of check-raising flop but at the same time I was afraid of sets.

      Turn came really ugly, since the most obvious draw completed. I was planning check/call on turn and free showdown. When he checks behind it looks weak but also he could induce c/r on river.

      On river I was sure I have the best hand but I couldn't see what hand can he possibly have. In the end I decided to c/call him = mostly for information.
      Better line would probably be bet/fold river? Like $0,95?

      Hello yaxkukmian,

      I'd likely Check/Fold it against big bet on turn but as played while he show weakness on turn by Checking behind, I'd just bet myself ~$0,80 or something similar.

      Best regards.
