      Hello swanny36,

      Preflop: If you even want to play those type of hands then rather isolate with them than complete. Take the initiative and might even be able to take down the pot postflop easier.

      As played
      Postflop: Way overplayed hand! Bet yourself the flop than Check/Raise it! You are just forcing all worse to fold and better ones will continue. So practically overplayed your hand. River also rather should be Bet/Fold or either way Check/Fold as you played. You most likely dominated there while it's just a freeplay pot.

      Best regards.
