      I think you should raise the flop to something like $0.2, as there is 2 clubs on the board and possible oesd, which it turns out he has, so you need to protect your hand.

      Hello Gonchan,

      Flop: It's not worth slowplaying while the board is super-drawy. So therefore it should be standard raise on flop.

      As played
      Turn: Also the second mistake is here. You are just giving great odds for a draw. Rather raise it normal size ~$1,40.
      River: As you see now he even bets pot. Wouldn't be surprised if he has something really strong hand but nothing much to do as you went that far. Be happy if he has any kind of 2pairs/worse sets.

      Don't slowplay on such boards. ;)

      Best regards.
