      How could I have played this better?

      His bet on the turn looks pretty weak/a draw. Think I should have raised here? Then how do I react to a reraise?

      Thanks

      Hello Jeffers16,

      Basically there is not much to do, I would as well Call him rather down and on river skip the thin value. Although there are even spots where I might raise him or just bet for value on river, but while we really don't know him then I do like your line.

      Best regards.
