      Hey guys got this one to look at, kind of got me puzzling if i played this hand right in anyway at all.
      I probably should have folded pre flop but just had a "feeling" so went with it, flop proved me right.
      Played the check bet raise as i thought i could extract the most value from this, didn't expect to be called lol. I was at that point putting him on a gut shot or an over pair.
      Turn was scary so bet out big try n force the fold, got pushed, at that point could only place him on a draw so called.

      Let me know what ya think, anyone ;)

      Hello scrads,

      Preflop: If you want to play such hands at all then raise it up but from MP, I'd just fold it.

      As played
      Postflop: I'd even Check/Raise bigger ~$0,70 on flop and getting it in on turn as well.

      Best regards.
