      You can try raising it to $0.3 on turn and shoving river. Villain might not fold so much.

      This is quite a marginal situation so it shouldn't affect you judgement of the hand because you are going all in this spot everytime and are only concerned to get as much of his money in the pot as possible. The optimal play is as Daphunk suggested a miniraise to not scare him away and then try to get all on the river.

      Hello MancaMulas,

      I would raise potsize on the flop when opponent checks to me as SB opencomplete and check on the flop is huge sign of weakness and you will very often win the pot right there without any action.

      As played, I would as well advise to raise turn smaller to .3 or .4$ to not scare opponent away, but also pushing isn't too bad as you would be commited on the river if you reraise without pushing.

      Regards,
