      I agree, bet $0.25 on the flop and as played $0.5 on the turn, planning to fold to a shove on that board.

      As played river is a gray area with only 17 hands, there is probably value in a bet against most bad players even tho it looks hard for him to call against with worse, they'll surprise you. I don't mind the check back since they can slowplay hands that they shouldn't.

      Hope it helps.
