      I raise for value preflop

      I get called by two loose players and get a wet board...I still think there is value in betting here vs their Ax cards, so I put a smaller bet size, I think being the pot 3way, they probably will put in a raise if they are on flush, so I bet just enough to keep weaker range in and still not loose much if I get raised...

      Turn card doesnt change much to me...I put a bigger bet here for value...this player is very loose and I expect him to call his 1 pair hands or any draws he is chasing

      River completes some straight draws he might be in...I am still not 100% sure he isnt on some weaker flush too so I decide to put in a blocker bet here...I would be in a tough decision if I checked and he bets and if he raises me here Ill have easy decision, still think he will probably call this size with weaker Ax hands

      Preflop is good.

      On this monotone board I would definitely bet bigger - around $0.55.

      Turn doesn't really change much, so I think betting again is mandatory here. Our sizing is good.

      On the river I do like the idea of a block bet here. The only problem here is that this sizing might incline him to bluff, so I would consider making it around $0.8.
