      Hello Ectoz,

      Preflop: I don't really like the 3bet and also I don't like the sizing either. I'd likely just Call it and play postflop. As if I decide to raise then I'd do it ~$0,24 for the reason that we also are OOP.

      As played
      Postflop: River bet is very thin, I guess I'd rather just let him bet missed draws or whatsoever.

      Overall, you seem to have some leaks playing preflop hands, I'd advice you to post more hands to find all those leaks. Without a good reason you can't really raise that profitable preflop for value.

      Best regards.
