      his call on the flop may have indicated a draw ( which you have beat) or a ace, which you are in good position to fight.

      on the turn, his call may indicate that he has an ace.

      i thought that the bet on the river was unneccesary, since you would not want to risk a re-raise and want to see the showdown.

      Hi,


      It's fine, just raise a tad bigger on the flop and shove the turn. You shouldn't get to the river with so little money left anyway, it's a mistake you need to correct in previous streets. Always be aware of how much money is left and how best to get it in.


      Hope it helps.
