      I called on the flop because I thought that his minraise is week, he probably has a flush draw or a weak pair. Do you think the call is ok.

      I should have bet the turn...

      But after I played it this way my question is:

      He didn't seem too turned on by the hearts on the flop and river do you think I could bet here for value or to scare of his 2 pairs, sets

      flop - this flop hits him pretty well so i dont mind checking back and we have A high thats some showdown value. bet is not terrible too but i dont like your big sizing, i think anything thats folding is usually very weak and folding to a smaller bet like 30 cents. as played i think calling is fine I think hes weak here and if he had sets or 2p he would raise bigger.

      turn - as played i think we can bet here again for value, his check/minR on the flop is usually weak and looks like some kind of pair hand which we can get value from. hearts draw could call too.

      river - nothing worse is calling here so checking back is fine. i dont think he has 2p or set so often because those hands would have bet the turn so here its usually a lucky flush or a pair hand that we beat and can showdown.
