      Hello qnb07,

      Preflop: Depends how good are you postflop? Do you think that you can play such hands easily profitable against unknown? Also are you able to fold your TP type of hands and etc? I'd rather avoid such Calls at the beginning and play solid ABC poker.

      As played
      Flop: As we Called preflop then we also have to Call such a flop for the given implied odds and etc.
      Turn: Could be doable, but the problem is if he we get raised then not put ourself into difficult spots. Therefore wouldn't be wrong if you just Check behind here but Betting is totally fine.
      River: I'd even consider raising bigger here, ~$2,50.

      Best regards.
