      When I look at this hand again, i feel like i should've raised the flop. Yes/no? On the turn i hit top two pair, but a queen makes a straight. I still have outs to a boat though, so i call such a small bet. On the river i think it's just too much of a risk to take, as a Q is easily in his range, and it could seem like he had flopped the nuts and then building a pot with min-bets.
      Btw, a few hands later i flop the nut straight, i slowplay it a bit, and he does this move again on the turn. He had air :D

      Hello Deekaayo,

      Preflop: Don't limp such hands. You wont play them profitable by limping. From UTG just fold. Also I'd rather avoid Calling here as well vs 3bet. You just put yourself into marginal spots postflop when trying go broke with just pair.

      As played
      Postflop: Obvious fold on river, you don't beat anything there. He has the nuts there.

      Best regards.
