      Hey MrgRa,

      Preflop is ok. Your hand is also strong enough to think about raising preflop vs a limper.

      Flop I would bet larger, closer to pot. You want to start building a pot since it was limped. Vs raise flatting is fine.

      Turn bet is fine, but betting larger is good.

      River bet is fine, but when you get raised you should probably just shove, I think you are missing value with a smaller raise here.
