      I don't like your bet sizing.

      And whats your thought process on every street?

      I bet a little bigger pre-flop because I'm out of position and he only raised 3BB.

      The flop bet's a standard c-bet with an overpair on a somewhat drawy board, maybe I should've made it a little bigger.

      The turn bet feels way too big, but I still have to protect against FDs and whatnot. The bad part is that it pot commits me.

      River bet I just go for his stack, at this point I don't really have a choice I guess.

      The preflop 3bet is ok.

      This is a spot you never must get in.
      If you bet the flop 1.1$, the pot on the turn would be 3.6$ and your stack 3.24$ so you can shove easily. This prevents you from spots like this.

      Try to plan your bet sizing better and read an article about it.

      Hello elda420,

      If you want to get it in the stacks on on the river then rather Bet flop bigger and ship it if you assume him even having Jx hands. Though river is rather worst card for us whilst htere ain't that many hands which pay you. Meanwhile a lot of stronger hands possible, so rather just Check the river whilst he Checks a lot of weaker hands behind.

      Best Regards.
