      Hello diversfx,

      Preflop: And once again, fold it preflop, you wont hit often enough to make the Call profitable and also the hand playability ain't that good postflop and you might do a lot of mistakes with it.

      As played
      Postflop: Nothing much you can do there. I don't like the raise on flop since we wont know what to do if he 3bets there. And of course just a lot worse hands will just fold. Otherwise I'd just Check the river and hope to see free showdown, I don't really think that he will Call there anyways with a lot worse, while there is also an Ace on board.

      Best regards.
