      And this one?

      I think my raise on the flop is ok, since it tells me he's probably still drawing, or on a marginal hand.

      Decide to just call on the turn to possibly induce another bluff/keep pot small, although maybe I shouldn't have given him the free river card with the 3 card flush already on the table?

      I didn't shove over him on the river since I figured any better hand like a flush will ship it then and I could maybe find a fold if needed, but maybe I can get a weaker ace/2 pair to call a value raise?

      Hello Jim4rdo,

      Flop: First of all, we definitely have to raise it here and do it even with any set. But I would do it bigger ~$1,40.
      Turn: And I'd basically raise it right here, he has a lot of A in his range which he might likely even go broke with.

      As played
      River: Guess there are still a lot worse hands which may call while it's NL5 and maybe even just Ax. But rather the question is either to shove or not. And rather raise it on turn and would be much easier to play.

      Best regards.
