      Hey M,

      I don't see a reason to lead so small on the flop. It's a limped pot as well so you need to build a pot. 0.65 would be my sizing here. On the turn then ofc bet bigger than you did, to about 1.90 in a just over 2 pot and finally bomb river as well.

      With your flop size, river should be 3-3.50 imo. I don't understand a reason for small sizings when people will love calling in a limped pot if they have Qx or better and you have way above average hand. Vs the minraise I think call is fine, vs bigger raise probably a fold. No bluff in his range in either case but this gives you good enough odds for split and set thin value raises, maybe a few bluff spazzes 1% of the time.
