      Hello oribken,

      Add to full stack.

      Preflop: Not a huge fan of limping with such hands. Also if you wanting to play for stacks on such a board then rather just fold the hand. Or either way if you even want to play then rather isolate and maybe take down the pot right here.

      As played
      Postflop: No point to raise on turn. Better hands will just 3bet you and get it in and most likely you will be far-far behind. Therefore, my line would be at the best to Call the turn and reevaluate it on river rather than Raise and go broke. Most likely even if I am raising then I'd rather consider folding to a raise since I don't expect to be far-far ahead here and at the best maybe we get a coinflip. But more likely we ain't doing such a play profitable.

      Best regards.
