      Hello YourDoom,

      Preflop: Open-raise with such hand ain't a very good idea preflop, I would do it only if we had a lot experience playing postflop.

      As played
      Postflop: I am more inclined to just Check/Call the turn if there is a smaller bet. To keep the pot smaller. Otherwise I'd also bet the river for ~$1.

      Best regards.
