      Hello p0rkus,

      Preflop: I wouldn't even limp with such hand here since we are OOP and we have to hit pretty big. We can easily make mistakes postflop while playing such hands for example if hitting TP or something similar or some kind of draw. Of course it's playable.

      As played
      Flop: Yep, you could bet a bit biger here, there are still a lot PPs and maybe even draws what would Call you.
      Turn: Could also bet here a bit bigger and Call the minraise since we still could hit our FH on river for example if he has even a straight here.
      River: Calling also such a small bet, it's way to weak and his sizing usually means that he is somehow scared and blocking the river since he wants to see the showdown.

      Best regards.
