      I am not sure whether I missed value by not raising the river here. I was scared of a flush or straight, but does villain really turn up often here with a backdoor flush or straight after calling on such a dry rainbow flop? In hindsight his river bet size looks more like a blockbet / thin value with Jx or maybe some weird 2-pair type of hand. Should I have made a small raise to entice such hands to call?

      He is not betting that small with flushes and straights, so it should be easy raise for value with set and since he has there 1$ left I´d likely just shove or at least raise to 0.7$

      Hello member001,

      Preflop: What's with the raise here? I would definitely do it bigger if I want to raise it at all. There are so many limpers so at least $0,16. And actually sometimes being not even against full stack I do like just limping behind, avoid 3bet spots while we wont get perfect odds for a Call.
      Postflop: Likely he wont have the made hand anyways on river, therefore you can threw a small raise. Usually when he really had a stronger hand then he would be inclined to bet it bigger as well.

      Best regards.
