      Villain is 19/13 over 140 hands. Can you please comment on my play? I'm not sure how I should have proceeded here - on that board, my hand was basically a bluff catcher against this kind of opponent.
      I'm interested in hearing how you guys would play the whole hand, not just the river.

      Feels standard from you side, he obvious got a draw and your betting is fine, you giving him bad outs, On those limits the avrage player won't river bluff.

      Hello Snuggles666,

      Flop: Basically while there are that many draws I would bet it even bigger like $1,75.
      Turn: And here as well bigger at least $3,50+.
      River: And not much you can do than Bet/Fold there. There ain't even that many hands which he would have turned into bluff. A flushdraw arrived and so on. And as well the sizing seems to be fine ~$6 and fold to a raise.

      Best regards.
