      HI daisuke,

      PF: Call. This hand is strong enough to call, you could use slightly weaker hands like J8s/J7s/57s to 3bet but I think with 2 medium cards, one gapper, and suited, you have decent playability even as the caller.

      I think your bet sizing seems awkward. Look at the river, how much money do you have left? I prefer to either bet larger on Flop and push Turn, or bet smaller on Flop and Turn and leave more money on River.

      Now pot is 35 on river and you have like 8$ left? Doubt you really bluff Turn with this amount of money left.
