      hi there, i wouldn't make it too much bigger than 5.50$.
      the turn brings about the most discconected card to the board and doesnt really improve his range for calling.

      i do like the river sizing too, he wouldn't fold his pairs and possibly A hi there and we are certain he has mostly a "showdown" hand after he continued on the turn

      Just bet the turn slightly larger. U could even go for a larger bet on the flop as well, maybe 2.50$.

      In general vs loose fishes just bet larger with strong hands. No need to balance.
