      turn
      On the turn I don't bet too much hoping for a raise. If the opponent has something that wanna call my nuts, it's either a monster (TT, JJ, maybe QQ) that wanted to ch/raise or TPTK that weirdly pot control. If it's the monster with a passive player, my small bet could push him to raise. If it's TPTK, two pair, ... I'm not sure he'd call more.

      Still, I'm wondering if a bit bigger wouldn't be more appropriate.

      river
      I still beat AQ, AA, KK. TT, JJ, TJ, JQ, QQ got me. I have two choices. Check back and take the safe option or a bet/fold to take some risk and optimise the value against donkeys. I'd do the bet around 1/4 or 1/3.
      What do you think?

      Hello EinsteinFranck,

      I'd most likely still Bet the turn bigger for value cause if he Calls you then he Calls you whatever Bet there. :) And also Bet the river for value something like $0,60. There are still tons of hands which may pay you.

      Best Regards.
