      Pre flop I completed as I feel this hand plays well enough in a multi-way pot to have a look.

      Played bet/fold on both flop and turn, on turn I felt if villian had hit flush he would raise.

      On river I didn't see how he would call with worse, so checked it down.

      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (10 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Flop: ($0.08) Q:spade: , J:spade: , 3:heart: (4 players)
      Hero bets $0.08, BB folds, UTG2 calls $0.08, MP3 folds.

      Turn: ($0.24) 2:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.14, UTG2 calls $0.14.

      River: ($0.52) 5:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG2 checks.

      Final Pot: $0.52

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Preflop: Kinda marginal to complete that kind of hand. While you just putting yourself so often into difficult spots when hitting a pair. Just what you trying to hit with Q8? Pretty much nothing.

      As played
      Postflop: Nothing much to add as you hit your TP. We are trying to Bet/Fold the turn for free showdown.

      Best regards.
