      Without any reads you played it perfect I think, If the guy was a fish / calling station you might have wanted to overbet the flop though.

      Bet bigger on the flop to get value from draws. The turn and river will then be bigger bets and you make more money. Otherwise this is good.

      Hello sebsejr,

      Preflop: Against those smaller raises and being so deep I'd definitely do bigger raise $0,24.

      As played
      Postflop: Well, I doubt that I would play it any differently. Although I guess river can be Checked behind as well, he will anyways have hard time Calling with a lot worse PPs/Pairs there. While overcard is on board and also any 5 gives a straight.

      Best regards.
