      Hey Gnama,

      Generally on a texture like 886 rainbow, a small sizing works best. Villain is less likely to connect with this board and a smaller sizing encourages him to continue with a wider range. Something like $0.55 would be fine.

      Turn sizing looks ok, villain likely has an overpair after he floats flop OOP.

      River shove looks good. K is a bad card for extracting value since villain's most likely holding by now is TT/JJ. If you'd bet smaller on earlier streets you'd probably bet small here rather than shove. Seeing as you only have 1/2 pot left your shove is fine.
