      Usually I don't like to limp even with a speculative hands so in most the case I enter the pot (most depend from the table) with mini-raise too keep pot low and give some odds to others to join.

      In this hand, I have deviate a bit from the standard linee

      Hello kiromanAAKK,

      Preflop: Yes, it's kinda doable but I wouldn't really recommend you doing that on early limits, just try to get used to the basic and you can always widen up later on your range. Such play I rather prefer to play against known opponents or either have more limpers in the pot.

      As played
      Postflop: I'd just Bet the turn and likely ship it on river if he just Calls, otherwise I'd go broke on river. There are still a lot worse hands which may Call us.

      Best regards.
