      Bigger at flop? The smal bet he made at the turn made me think that he wanted me to raise him so I called to play a smaller pot instead.

      On flop your raise is good for normal player. However when you play very loose one I would recommend raising bigger so at least to $0,40.

      Turn is block bet so I would raise him again to min $0,70. If he shoves over we're in tough spot but against loose unknown I'm going broke and making a note on him. Turn is the best blank ever so his equity if he has draws drops significantly and if he has some Q9 then tough luck.

      River: I would shake my head and fold it here.

      If we raised flop to $0,40 (pot would be $1). If he donks 1/5 and we raise him again 4x ($0,80) we would probably get it in on the turn (if he's pushing people out the pot we can also immediately raise-shove after his block bet).

      Hello Skaladpotatis,

      Flop: Since the board is so draw-heavy I would it raise it even bigger liek $0,50.
      Turn: And raise it as well here since it rather is a block-bet which tries to get cheap a draw, ~$1 at least.
      River: Not much you can do, he will most of the time have us beat, we beat like nothing, very likely had the KQ or something similar.

      Best regards.
