This is a discussion on $5 NLHE 6-max: Bets too low against flush draw? within the online poker forums, in the Cash Game Hand Analysis section; Wondering if I should have put in higher raises on the flop and turn. Ans also if my call on the river was totally out
Turn:($1.09, 2 players) 7♣ Hero bets $0.85, CO calls $0.85
River:($2.79, 2 players) 4♠ Hero bets $1.35, CO raises to $2.70, Hero calls $1.35

Well played untill u call his min reraise on river. Hes never doing that with worse than what you have. The sizing is not bad in my opinion.

He won't be min-raising with anything worse.
Fold to the river raise, although I would x/c river here, because you just don't beat much.

Nh... with no reads, you can fold the river min raise. Standard b/f on the river though.

I wonder how often he's going to call your river bet with worse or fold with better. Considering his limp-call pre- followed by flop and turn calls, I'd guess not all that often, even 4-handed.
If I'm going to bet call a small raise, I'd at least consider checking the river instead. I can then decide whether to call after seeing how much he bets. Assuming he does bet, I'd lean toward folding since all I beat is bluffs and maybe some rather thin value bets.

Bet sizing on the flop and turn are fine. As previously stated fold river after the min raise. And I have no problem check/folding the river vs. a decent bet on someone that I only have 1 hand against.
FD got there which is a big part of his range based on how he played the hand and I don't think too many players are able to turn their Ax/Kx + straight draw hands into a bluff on this board.
Would definitely open my range against him in position, raising a lot of his open limps trying to get into as many heads up pots against him.
