      Hello Gonchan,

      Flop: Guess I'd be more inclined to CBet it unless I know the opponent has a very wide range and is capable of bluffing with it as well. And most likely if I do Check it vs unknown in this spot it's a Check/Fold for me.

      As played
      River: Check/Fold it. Your play just doesn't make sense. If you had a hand then you would be very likely betting the turn as well. So basically had to 3barrel to get rid of his PPs.

      Best regards.

      Cbet is because 2 high card came? and if I decide to CB, what bet size
      is preferred, around 0.70$?

      Not just because 2high card came but to avoid him taking bluffs into us. We can easily even take down the pot or either even secure free showdown. With Check/Call you can let him barrel a lot of streets and will never know where you stand with your hand.

      And I'd bet ~$0,60 while it's a 3bet pot.
