      Ok, I think I should have bet higher on the turn... but besides that, the guy insta called my flop and turn bets (like if he was holding the check/call any button xD ) so that's why (I know, silly reason ) I raised potsize on the river... do you think he'd have called say a 1/2 pot with the weaker hand he obv has, or is this a case where any weak hand would fold to any bet size and I was right??

      $1,4 on the turn would be better.

      I would bet just $2,50 on the river. Kind is a scare card so with your big bet he might easily fold (as he did). In the best case scenario, he might find your smaller bet as weakness and try to bluff you on scare card (which you would welcome). And if he has fullhouse (or straight which is unlikely), he will raise anyway.

      Preflop: OK.
      Flop: OK.
      Turn: Bet bigger, ~$1.50.
      River: Bet ~$2.50, he might call a smaller bet with some PP or a lower pair.

      Best regards,
