      I don't like my play here... I feel that I don't do well in freeplays where I flop something.

      Hello Tomaloc,

      Flop: I'd actually bet it bigger like $0,04. And as we get min-raised then should be fine to Call. He may still do that with worse pairs and even draws.
      Turn: Would as well continue betting, he does still have worse hands in his range and even draws.
      River: Although this is rather a Bet/Fold. it's just a freeplay pot and I don't think that you beat much when he decides to raise. Try asking yourself what you beat here?

      Best regards.
