      Hey Daisuke3823,

      Preflop open is loose-ish but fine. Works great if there are fish at the table.

      Cbetting when you flop equity is good.

      When you make a straight on the turn value-betting is good.

      On the river, you are not actually over-betting here, because the effective stacks are $10.03. Bluffing in these spots is usually fine - although certain villains will snap call you with board here. You represent a jack though, so a lot of opponents will still fold, and some are just not paying enough attention to realise they have a straight and just auto-muck because their flush-draw missed etc.
