      I'm new here, so wait for an expert's advice before you take mine, but:

      Preflop: Even in SH, this is an easy fold

      Flop: I'd just call here like you did since you're on a draw and want more cards as cheap as possible

      Turn: I couldn't see him betting here with anything other than a queen really. A pair of twos isn't a good hand here and you have 1/3 odds of making your hand better (any heart, a 2 or a K), so I'd only call here if you're paying less than 1/3 of the pot. Here with a 1/2 pot bet I'd fold.

      River: Your only real choice is to bet like you did here imo.

      I understand that, but looking at the blinds here, both are very loose (unless you only have a few hands on them) so likely to call a raise. K2 isn't a hand I'd attempt a blind steal with either, since if you get called and there's no flush draw on the flop, you're only really getting 3 outs - for kings, as a 2 won't help you against anyone.

      Hello Belgas,

      Preflop: The problem here is that there are 2 very loose opponents and one of them is half stack, therefore I would even fold such hands as K2s, of course they are playable but not that great idea for the beginning learnings.

      As played
      Flop: Since he is giving you that great odds, I'd usually also prefer to take them and just Call, since even if we raise I expect to get Called very often, he could easily even Call us with just high cards.
      Turn: As he still gives us pretty decent odds then I like Calling here, also we are kinda deep.
      River: I'd bet ~$0.40 and likely fold to a raise if there will be one, otherwise, nothing much to do.

      Best regards.
