      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      CO:
      $8.64
      BU:
      $5.41
      SB:

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A, T.
      Hero raises to $0.15, MP3 calls $0.15, 4 folds, 3 folds, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.37) 9, 7, 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.26, MP3 raises to $0.70, Hero calls $0.44.

      Turn: ($1.77) Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.11, MP3 calls $1.11.

      River: ($3.99) 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.21, MP3 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      What would be a better bet sizing here to milk the most out of him on the river?

      Hello Ickki,

      Preflop: Would rather advice not to play such hands from UTG.

      As played
      Postflop: What do you mean by most of him? With normal size and not even over-shove you put him all-in.

      Instead you should be asking if you ever even get the implied odds here cause it will be 4card flush, we will be OOP, so very often you might just see Check behind or fold on the turn.

      Best Regards.

      I was wondering, as played, what a good bet size is for the river in such situations. I realize that my play on the flop may not have been +eV.
