      Hello Krishjanis,

      Preflop: I'd raise $0,12 while even being OOP.
      Flop: Also Bet it bigger to protect my hand ~$0,18.
      Turn: Doesn't make much of sense to Bet flop small and then turn almost pot size, rather keep them in balance, so I'd bet ~$0,40 here.
      River: Rather Bet/Fold myself smallish to avoid him betting really big which we wont be able to Call. :)

      Best Regards.
