      Hey guys!

      CO: 31/8 after 52 hands
      BB: 36/17 after 58 hands

      Pre: I raised 4x and not 5x because both players left to act are short and it's going to be easy to get stacks in.

      Flop: Easy cbet. Wasn't sure about sizing though. And looking back I think I made a big mistake there. I think I should bet bigger and ship the turn to get it in vs his draws and worse pairs.

      Turn: As played I think to small again because if the draw miss I might not get the rest.

      River: River sucked. I couldn't bet because the draws fold and lower pairs might as well. So I decided to go for the bluff catch. I don't know if I'm ever good here though but I'm getting a great price.

      Your preflop play is good.

      On the flop, as you pointed out, you should go for a bigger bet and put the money in on the turn.

      As played, what do you think about check/raising the turn? Do you think it's any good here?

      On the river, considering that he has around 1/3 pot bet left, I doubt he folds any made hand, so I'd just shove for value here, rather than give him a chance to check back.
