      Hello juhiimi,

      Flop: If I'd raise here then a bit bigger ~$1.
      Turn: Very likely would CBet it bigger as well to gain better protection from a draw, ~$1,70.
      River: As we have straight and he might even block-bet with sets/2pairs etc type of hands then I don't think that I'd lay it down very easily unless I know the opponent a bit better. And nope he wouldn't have flush always there. If the bet would be like $3+ then it would be much harder for us to Cal but for the given ain't wrong.

      Best regards.
