      I thought of calling on the turn to his small bet .
      but I raised.
      can I bluff raise on the river against to the small bet?

      I think his WTSD is too big to bluff him on river. That said, your turn raise is way too small. Raise as much as you would with a set or better and go from there. You will have much more success if you play it like a set, in Tony G's words. :)

      Try to get rid of sizing tells, just use very exploitive sizing vs fish... it's still not a sizing tell there either, you just exploit their tendencies.
