      Hello,

      Preflop is fine.

      On the flop I like cbetting here.

      As played, what's the point in checking the turn? I would bet here myself.

      On the river, I'd bet around $0.25.
      When he raises it sucks, but I can't really see too much 3x in his range, so I'd call as well.

      Best,
      Plamen
