      Villain is 51/10 player on 45 hands.

      On river all draws miss and there will now be fewer Qx combos in his range. My betsizing is supposed to represent a genuine value hand since he would fold 56 and missed FD's anyway, but I suppose that this is a mistake vs a fish because he'll just think it looks weak.

      Hi.

      I prefer betting larger on Flop and Turn, I feel like many players make the mistake of betting too small and half pot bets are very weak.

      Larger bet sizes usually favour the better player in general. If you are value betting, you win more. If you are bluffing, you build up the pot more before taking it down. In short, the better player wins the pot more often, and if the pot is larger, the better player wins a larger pot more often.

      River: This is probably the worst card to bluff at, but I like the concept behind your bet. If you want to bet just to fold out missed draws then make it small, I think you should go even lower to like 1.50$. A passive player is not going to bluff raise you here.
