      Hero (BTN): $11.66 - VPIP: 19, PFR: 16, 3B: 7, AF: 4,1, Hands: 64583

      Pre Flop: ($0.06) Hero is BTN with A :spade: A :heart:
      1 fold, MP raises to $0.08, CO calls $0.08, Hero raises to $0.36, 3 folds, CO calls $0.28

      Flop: ($0.86) 5 :diamond: 7 :heart: 2 :diamond: (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $0.60, CO calls $0.60

      Turn: ($2.06) Q :diamond: (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $1.20, CO calls $1.20

      River: ($4.46) 9 :diamond: (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero checks

      Turn: bigger bet( something like 3/4)? I was little lost because of the awkward stack sizes. I don't think this card is so bad. When he took that line he most likely doesn't have AdKd. Because Qd is on the board he could have KJd, AJd, ATd, sometimes KTd ad JTd + if he had that combos he is often raising me on a flop. He have pp in his range 55-TT and pair+fd such as QXd 88d, 99d, TTd.
      river: bet or not to bet? Because of showdown eq vs pp and I'm beat vs flush which is in his range. And we have 1/2 bet left so reduced FE

      Hi.

      I think you played it fine.

      About bet-sizing

      I usually bet smaller on Flop in 3b pots (half pot only) and you can half pot the Turn too. The awkward stack size was caused by a lack of planning for future streets.

      River: really no reason to bet here. diamonds are never folding IMO, and you are rarely getting called by worse one pair hands.
