      Hello,

      Preflop isolating is good.

      Board is quite connected so I prefer betting on the bigger side here - around $0.45.

      As played, I like your turn bet.

      As played, I like your river bet as well.
      I think your sizing is fine. I think there won't be too much difference in his calling range if we bet like 1/2 pot so I think betting like this is good.

      Nice hand.

      Best,
      Plamen
