      Hi Yoghi!

      Raise more on the turn (~$1) to protect your hand. I would also bet on the turn because you want to find out whether you have the best hand and you want to protect your hand. As played I would fold the river because you lose against every two pair or straight and it is unlikely that Villain bets a weaker pair.

      Good luck at the tables!
