      Hello jdnismo,

      Preflop: Since there is a dead-blind poster you can raise it bigger, ~$0,25. Dead-blind poster = limp.

      As played
      Postflop: Seems to be fine, till river. On river I'd say we can even consider rather just folding, he ain't taking such a line anyways with worse. Likely has us beat, while we have shown 2 streets of strength.

      Best regards.
