      Just wanna know if my betsizes are OK in this hand. The turnbet is somewhat smal but because he called the flopbet, is it OK to assume he's not on a flushdraw? I made it that small because I don't have a made hand, idem for the blockbet on the river (he might have A5 here where I was affraid of).

      Bet more on the turn to protect against flush and straight draws. On the river I would play check/call to induce bluffs from busted draws.

      bet bigger on turn. he will call you down with alot of hands like 9x, pocket pairs.
      as played: you can also maybe shove the river he will call with TT-QQ, maybe A9/88. this bet is also okey maybe bit bigger. A set he probably would have raised on the turn by the way.

      Inducing bluffs by flush draws/ other pocketpairs is read dependable. River aggression. rather yust bet/shove to get value from A9/88/TT-QQ and other pairs
