      Hi veriz,

      Hmm not a good move preflop, should've raise.
      Anyway I got a good outs postflop with top pair.
      I think it's better to raise flop to check where he stands rather on the turn.

      Thanks,
      cpers

      Hello cpers,

      Preflop: If you even want to play such hands then never-ever limp. Rather isolate the opponent.

      As played
      Postflop: Rather raise the flop than pretty much X card for us on turn. Just gives us a GS but that doesn't add much of equity. With turn you commit yourself too much.

      Best regards.
