      No reads on villain here.

      Pre-flop I decided to call in position with a hand that plays relatively well post-flop against a loose-passive player.

      On the flop I called to keep bluffs in his range. On the turn, I decided to make a raise to try and build a pot with what would likely be the best hand, but I think I raised way too small here. The river is pretty standard I suppose.

      Should I have raised the flop? Called the turn?

      Hello TinoLaan,

      Add to full stack if playing BSS. PokerStars has even the possibility to auto-rebuy.

      Preflop: Rather isolate than limp in. Take the initiative.

      As played
      Postflop: I'd raise the flop already and protect my hand. But otherwise I'd go for thin value on the river like 10cents.

      Best Regards.
