      bet more on the flop ~ 0.8$
      bet more on the turn ~ 1.8$
      block bet/fold the river. (2/5-1/2 is fine)

      I suggest you read the article Bet sizes - how much do you bet?
      which can be found here: http://www.pokerstrategy.com/strategy/no-limit/1327/

      Thanks!
      Well, the board is not very drawy (just a low connector could draw), so I didn't see the point in betting much.

      You should bet bigger not only to protect your hand (and forcing you oppnennat making a mistake by calling a drawing hand against wrong pot odds) but to get value from you hand. Betting small is in spots like this is just losing value.
      More over fish with a draw will chase it and won't really notice if you bet 2/5, 2/3, 3/4 or w/e. They are too :f_love: with the draw, so we should use this weakness to maximize our value which will maximize our winnings.
