      Pretty neat table, 22 people folded preflop.

      As far as postflop go I think you know the drill by now, he can be semi-bluffing or he can have a set, weighting those ranges depends solely on your reads on the guy. Setminers always have you 2-outing, aggro monkeys have some random draw more often than not. In general I'd say unless you've seen your opponent do something dumb/aggro already, he's more likely to have a set than a random draw.

      When he makes such a small bet on the turn I'd say it makes it more likely that he's not bluffing and he's just not afraid of anything anymore. Tho you'll see people making such a cheap 2nd barrel semi-bluff as a pot-building move, most of them will usually just check back and take a free card with a draw if they're not ready to make a real bet. Still, it takes a decent read of your opponent to fold getting those odds, you never who what the hell an unknown could be doing.

      River is pretty much the same except it's even less likely he's bluffing two for cheap amounts, it looks totally valuebetty to me. Calling with those odds once you get there can't be that bad tho.

      Hope it helps.
