      I think you played it fine. Just bet flop, bet turn, check river and call any blank though I wouldn't be happy about it.

      Hi.

      I think bet-size is suboptimal.

      The amount left on the River is very awkward when it's <50% pot. You should have bet smaller on Flop (60 cents into 94c) and on the Turn as well (half pot is fine so that's around 1.07 into 2.14 which builds the pot to 4.28). Now there will be around a half pot bet left.

      What's the best line here? I think bet twice and calling river is fine.
