      Hello ppedrin,

      Preflop: Fold it preflop. :)

      As played
      Flop: I might even consider betting pot here, but as played and we get raised, I guess I would be as well more often inclined to just Call and reevaluate his further actions.
      Turn: I guess likely just Checking shouldn't be wrong, since with betting we might protect from draws but as well few draws completed, what would be your action if he raises you? Therefore I wouldn't say that Checking is like very wrong here but definitely betting is as well considerable to bet it for free showdown and as well for protection.
      River: I guess there aren't that many worse hands what Call your huge bet here anyways. any 3x even gives a straight and as well 2pairs are possible, therefore I might even just Check it and see a free showdown.

      Best regards.
