      i dont like my turn size. i think i should have made it bigger sth like 7,50 or 8?? , btn looks a bit fishy anyway.
      on the river im really not sure waht a good size would be since there is a flush possible + a one card straight. do i want to bet big and hope he has the straight or a flush ? or is it better to bet small to let him call with weaker hands + at least flushes he would raise???

      I don't think 2pairs is going to call on this river unless he's really loose and bad. You should not be bluffing here too often as well, especially when he could very easily have the straight.

      I think you should just bet on the larger side to target his straights and worse flushes. Pot bet for me

      yeah I'd size my bet to get called by a straight, which he can easily have with KQ being his most likely holding..
