      Hello Tatarken,

      Preflop: There are 2 limpers so raise should be 30 cents.
      Postflop: Your play just doesn't make sense at all, rather Check/Fold right on the flop, especially if we assume not to have much fold equity. It's way too ugly board to CB cause you will get floated very often and/or happens exactly this where you just spewed away money.

      Best Regards.

      What would you do on river? There is 4 connected board. Is pure bluff 1 dolar to 1.87dolar pot good play? Or just check-fold it is better? Maybe bet more? Maybe less?

      On those stakes don't try to bluff loose players, easy and simple rule. :)
