      Hi Mugge88!

      I think a calldown is the best play here because this way you minimize your losses if you have not the best hand. You cannot fold to his minraise and to the small bet on the river.
      In general I recommend that you bet more on the flop (~$0.40) and more on the turn (~$0.90).

      Good luck at the tables!

      The board just didn't seem very connected to me, hence the relatively small flop/turn bet.. I guess I could try increasing my bets since most opponents on these low limits doesn't even consider how there odds are, and what they might be up against - they just focus on their own two cards

      You are right. That's why you should make bigger bets: to get more value out of worse hands.

      Good luck at the tables!
