      In this hand i think the pre-flop and flop play is pretty standard. My questions relate to the turn and river.

      On the turn is the bet ok? Villian could call with a lower pair or over cards and maybe shove his better hands so at least i know where i am. Or should i be checking behind as the villian has already check/called on the flop?

      On the river i check behind because i doubt i'm getting a call from worse hands and don't want to get raised so its best just to take the free showdown. Is that thinking ok?

      Hello jxb1977,

      Preflop: Not on those limits, just fold such hands, unless you know the opponents behind you that they are capable of folding enough to steal.

      As played
      Postflop: Seems to be fine, although I don't really see much fold equity there on turn anyways. Rather just we got some showdown value now and Check behind and hope to see a showdown without calling.

      Best regards.
