      I think I played this hand okay but was just wondering if my passive play was better than an aggressive line here??

      Also is the bet sizing okay on the river??

      I am pretty happy with the way I played the hand.

      Preflop is fine.

      On the flop with two overcards, flush draw and gutshot I prefer raising here. We can definitely make him fold better hands here and if he calls us, we have position so we can check back.

      I would rather fold on the turn here.
      I don't think he bluffs here and we are not given good price to chase our draw plus it is obvious.

      As played, we are mostly getting called by Qc/Kc on the river so I would consider betting around $2.5.
