      I guess if I would have raised more on the flop or river he could have folded so I think the play is quite conservative but right (on the turn I raised almost the pot) thanks

      raise more on the turn. it doesnt have anything to do with how big ur raise is regarding the pot size. its about what odds villain gets. and as i can see villain gets great odds on the turn to call his flushdraw/straightdraw. its 40 in 125. villain needs 24% equity to call break even, he has 22% on the turn, with implieds he easily got a call on the turn. so u shud have betted bigger on that street.

      why didnt u raise the river? his intention on the river with his blocking bet is obviously to buy a cheap showdown.

      Hello cekpirus88,

      Preflop: Could easily even raise for value but of course it ain't a must if you don't feel comfortable postflop.

      As played
      Flop: I'd raise the flop for value and protection, there are enough of worse Jx hands in his range.

      As played
      Turn: Should also raise it bigger here to protect your hand.
      River: Well, his sizing looks kinda weak so you could easily even raise for value, not that huge but like ~$1,20 should be enough.

      Best Regards.
