      Initial tTurn raise could be a little bigger. Half pot barely pays the protection tarriff against the flush draw.

      Im not sure how you extract more value, that last card completes the most likely draw on you and you hold the worst possible 5 (given 52 has FH). Im not sure how many hands you beat here that call preflop, call flop, re-raise turn and bet into you on river. AT and bluffs is about it. TT, 45-56, A5s, Adxd all have you nutted.

      As played I think its crying call on the river. Im not even remotely close to being upset at not getting enough value if im in front here.

      I would played it the same way, expect that I´d bet 1$ on the turn.
