      Bet sizing is bad here. You're playing against a loose passive player, so ask yourself, what are you trying to do here? The answer is to get as much money as possible from him. How do you do this? By having bet as much as possible by the river. Therefor you need to plan ahead so you can extract as much value as possible on all streets without overbetting.

      Flop: OK

      Turn: 0.5

      River: 1.5

      This is how I would bet. Unfortunately we don't have a pot big enough to be all in by the river but this gives us maximum value.
