      Can we vbet R? Missed flushes don't pay us out. Maybe some Tx like T9, T8, but there are some 7x in his range and I wasn't sure about his range so I just c behind.

      If R comes blank 2 is that an easy vbet? There are straights possible, sets, AT. Bet/fold would be the correct play if I were playing A game.

      Hello,

      Preflop is fine.

      I would bet more on the flop - $0.55 and we can bet more on the turn as well - $1.3.

      As played, I'm having a hard time choosing the right bet size - either something like $1.3 since I doubt he's going to fold a hand like T8 against this sizing, or betting like $3 and hoping to induce him to call due to the busted draws.
      Without information I would rather choose the first option.
      If the river was a blank it's an easy bet around half pot I guess.

      Best,
      Plamen
