      Your flop contibet is a littlebit small.
      Player might float with Jx or KQ, KT.
      I´d make it 4$ and c/f turn. Since BU bet small I´d call turn and hope to see showdown.

      His c-bet is almost 3/4 of the pot.. if the villain is calling that .5$ won't change much.

      Villain is giving us a good price here.. so a call is order, we only need one in five to break even.

      If you call turn, you should call such a weak bet on river too..

      What about b/f turn? Good board for 2nd barrel imo..

      the 4 doesnt change anything and the board isnt drawy ... just some gutshots . double barreling will fold all weaker hands that you dominate and want to keep them in (qj kj 10j , 99 , 1010 , qq ) and all gutshots that may try to float you and you will get called by an ace or better .
      so you fold all worst and get called just by better ... isnt profitable imo

      I thought that his small riverbet actually looks strong after his small turnbet was called. He wouldn't bet Jx hands. If he wanted to bluff, then aftter my turn call, he should think that i call a 1/3 pot size bet quite often.
      Of course if he is a good player, he knows that i can interpret his line like this, and could try a bluff, and as kukac26 wrote, i might have the necessary odds to look him up.

      Thanks for the comments,
