      i'd bet bigger on the turn as you invite him to draw if he has a 7 with a half pot bet... he gets 3 to 1 on his money and that is usually enough because you are not folding to a small bet on the river if he hits...

      if i raise bigger on the turn and he still draws, it would be a harder decision to call the river bet, as a lot of two pair hands and the mentioned straight are possible

      Flop: Just make the CBet here or you have any reason not to CBet such a perfect board? You are very often taking the pot down here.

      As played
      Turn: Fine. I don't really like the raise here because we aren't ready to go broke with our hand, I like to go for pot control here.
      River: As his W$SD is so weak then I think I would make the Call here also and not him down with what he is doing such half potsize bets.

      Best regards,
