      Hi!

      I would play this hand exactly like you did, only on the river I would bet more, around 3/4 pot which means ~$.75.

      Cheers!

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Well, if he is rather passive guy then I would even consider just Checking it right on flop since you wont make any hands or any pairs/PPs there to fold. Somewhat drawy there as well.

      Otherwise seems to be fine.

      Best Regards.
