      I think i had to bet bigger on the flop, maybe raise the mini turn bet.

      Don't think i can call on the river now.

      i think u misread the hand here.
      Normally he is limp/calling pockets pairs here utg. so
      u should have bet the flop bigger and raise the turn smallish.
      On the river i dont believe he has anything else but pocket 66 (assuming he is reasonable).

      Your hand is relatively weak right from the flop so i think it's fine to c-bet without making it huge.

      On the turn either he has some lone heart that he's trying to draw cheaply with or a Q that wants to see a showdown, or he has the nuts somehow and you'll get minbet/3bet. Your call i guess, depends how tricky/bad you think he is. Either keep the pot small knowing it's possible he'll bluff at you on a blank river, or make some kind of value raise against lone hearts and fold if you get 3bet.

      As played on the river you're up against a completely polarized range, either he has a flush/boat or he has some busted 1 heart hand. Again, your call, based on your reads and his timing. Most of the time i'm just folding.

      Hope it helps.
