      Hello, sometimes I do this, especially if I am being called very fast on each street. I'm thinking in the end that even though I'm waiting for the flush I can also represent overcards, tptk, two pairs, sets etc.

      My question to you is: is this play +ev in the long run?

      Hello,

      Preflop raising is fine.

      Why do you bet the flop so small?
      I'd bet $0.6 here.

      As played, I'm definitely betting the turn here. It improves our equity and I'd make it $1.1-$1.2.

      On the river I prefer giving up here.

      Best,
      Plamen
