      was the final raise small ?
      was the check on turn bad ?
      yeah, i should have protected my hand.
      but then I took the risk of showing weakness and make my move on river.
      club on the River and I would have shut down.
      what do you think ?

      Hello ankurag,

      And welcome to the forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future, so we will be able to help you fix your leaks and as well help move up the limits. Will be waiting for next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      About the hand:
      Preflop: Depends a lot how good is your postflop play? If you planning to play pairs aggressively then I'd rather just fold such hands. If you rather trying to play for bigger hands then might even be considerable, although you must have a plan how you gonna play the hand profitable postflop.

      As played
      Turn: I'd just bet it here to build up the pot and even maybe protect from 1card FD.
      River: Raise size seems to be fine, depends a lot on the opponent. Might even just ship it when I see him being more fishy one.

      Best regards.
