      Hello alexgrapid,

      Preflop: Yep, I'd likely fold it here, we at the best get a coinflip anyways. And even if we Call we can't never be sure that we can do it a profitable Call. Often times I like just folding it here unless I have a good reason.

      As played
      Postflop: Not much you can do, there ain't much better flops you could hit, of course like straights and 2pairs and so on but you just wont hit that often them. And turn for the given odds I'd also Call and river as well. :)

      Best regards.
