      You can bet flop smaller like 2 dollars. It's a dry board and most hands are folding. Usually hands that call you here are pocket pairs, top pair and sometimes ace high and your bet sizing being bigger does not fold them out.

      On the turn we hit a flush draw and we can bet again to fold out pocket pairs that could have called us. However when there was the raise he is saying he's strong and probably have trips top pair or something he isn't folding and we have the odds to draw against him.

      While he is mid stacked, this raise on then turn is still very strong.

      On the river we don't hit and should just check fold although he only has a little behind. A bluff isn't going to work since he only has a little behind. However if I do hit my flush I would shove it in myself for value since I know he's committed and isn't folding
