      Hello Tomaloc,

      Preflop: If you want to raise it at all here then I would do it even bigger, 2 limpers and as well being OOP. Therefore ~$0,14.

      As played
      Postflop: Your small bet on turn could easily induce him to raise you. I would basically just do a normal bet like $0,50 and fold to the raise, even if he is somewhat aggressive. We will never know where we stand with our hand and basically sometimes they tend to limp/raise this way even some high PPs.

      Best regards.
