      Hey guys,

      Hello MoneyGirl2906,

      Preflop: While there is one limper raise 5xBB.
      Flop: Don't overbet it. You just telling that you have a strong hand and wont even get called from weak hands. Rather make it ~$0,17.
      Turn: Seems to be fine. We planning to Bet/Fold it for free showdown and as well protection & value from weaker hands.
      River: Nothing much to add, most of the draws complete and we don't have many hands from we get value from.

      Best regards.
