      Hello pokervin123,

      Flop: First of all, while the board is so drawy you can even put a $1,50 bet.
      Turn: And as well your raise is too small here, ~$5 at least would be mine. You just giving away perfect odds to Call with any draw.

      As played
      River: Not much you can do here, although sometimes I might even just fold against that kind of line, since we will be too often beat here.

      Best regards.
