      Preflop raise is too small. 4BB +1 for limper = 0,1 $ would be right. When raising this hand, you should play really carefully postflop when hitting top pair.

      Its a good flop to Cbet so flop play is OK.

      I would second barrel here with this scary turncard but I think check is also fine.

      On river raise for value. His donk may indicate some slowplayed monster but it may be a lonely 5 or weaker flush.

      I agree with kosmonaut, I'm second barreling here always.
      A lot of fish will call a flop bet but snap fold to turn bets, and betting the turn again is another way we can pick up this pot incase our flushdraw misses completely.

      River raise is a little small, I'd make it close to $0.60 here.

      Hi,


      I think your line is fine, tho as previously said most of us would likely fire at that K scare card on the turn to get rid of all the floats passive players still have in their ranges after calling a bet on a paired board. Pocket pairs, overcards without a K, random gutshots or flushdraws, all of those either can't stand a turn bet and will fold, or you're ahead of with A-high + dominating flushdraw so you're valuebetting.


      Hope it helps.
