      looks fine but why did you bet so small on flop+turn? You had special reads?

      At the very least I would probably bet bigger on flop if it were me playing.

      Hi,


      NH imo. If your opponent can be induced to make light peels with overcards and stuff the smaller bet on the flop makes sense on a relatively dry board, and once we get to the turn it becomes somewhat scarier plus it's unlikely he'll peel light twice, so we increase the bet size to focus on getting value out of draws and Tx.
      On the river the A is scary for a lot of people, so betting half pot to make sure we don't scare away Tx hands is a good thing.


      Hope it helps.
