      Hello Bogdan1190,

      Preflop: Well, I would still raise 4xBB if I am raising at all. Don't take it as habit raising with weak hands 3xBB and strong hands 4xBB.

      As played
      Flop: The same goes for postflop play. It doesn't mean that you didn't hit good on the board that according to that you gonna CBet. CBet should be ~$0,12 here at least. He may raise you with any kind of hand while seeing weakness in your bet size.

      As played
      Turn: Well, I'd still bet bigger even here, ~$0,26 even to protect such a draw-heavy board.
      River: With Check/Calling you get only action from maybe some missed draws. Although while Qx and such hands may still Call you I'd Bet/Fold ~$0,50. Although as he shoves I don't really see how you can Call there and beat anything.

      Best Regards.
