      Hello ILuvBeachVB,

      Posting blind while being MP ain't that great idea, I would often just wait for BB. And as played I would likely raise it bigger preflop, since it's NL2 and people tend to Call a lot wider range, at least 4BB.

      As played you could also consider Check/Calling there on river since he may want to bluff some kind of draws but betting out and hoping for Jx type of hands to get Called is also perfectly fine, well played. Don't really understand what BU was thinking with his FH, that you have a better FH or what. :D

      Best regards.
