      PF: I raised to isolate the limper and also to build the pot since we're both deep.

      Flop: I think I bet too small? Should have bet $0.32-$0.4 on this wet flop.

      Turn: When he donks 2/3 pot on this 3, I think he might have some middle overpairs, FD and also 33 and 55. I raised for value against this range.

      River: When he donks this kinda bet again, I was a little wary of being trapped by a better FH, but he might also do this w a completed Flush now. So once again, I decided to raise for value. My raise is a little too small?

      Question: I am opening myself to a 3-bet here w my raise on the River. I don't think I'm ever going to fold to a 4-bet or a shove here? He might do that w any Flush.

      you lost so much value simply because of your small sizing. just start by betting 35-40cents on flop and make bet sizes that are much closer to pot size.

      like on the river u should just raise to 5$
