      Hello ILuvBeachVB,

      Preflop: Rather just fold it from MP and it's even almost UTG. And if you want to raise then do it 4x.

      As played
      Postflop: I'd actually even bet it bigger on flop ~$0,55 at least. And otherwise I am as well betting the river and then decide what kind of actions I will take. But against this line it's kinda close but while you somewhat decided this line. Whatever you wanted to achieve with the Check/Call, which I don't really understand I am Calling this. He can still have 2pairs/sets and so on hands.

      Best regards.
