      Hi,
      Flop - the board seemed to be dry, so I decided to slowplay and just called. Is it a mistake against this opponent?
      Turn - is my raise too small?
      River - do I call his bet?

      Thanks!

      Nice hand. Calling the flop is fine because we don't mind it if he keeps bluffing. On the turn our good hands turns into a very good hand so we want to play for stacks, I like the raise it's a good size to let him continue with some draw he turned and be comitted by the river.

      Calling the river is no question about, you're comitted by far :)
