      Hi,


      I'm raising bigger preflop with the dead money from the posters, 5x minimum, 6x is fine too.

      I'd bet more like $1.2 on the turn, we likely have the best hand and it's very drawy.

      Without reads it's fine since we're getting very good odds on the river, but we're very often beat. You can consider check/calling the river too, lots of draws out there that missed.


      Hope it helps.
