      Hello Fields1878,

      Welcome to the NL BSS Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Well, even if you raise it for value on flop then why do you bet that smallish on turn? You are practically giving great odds for anyone to draw for anything. Rather make it ~$0,45.

      As played the river is a Check/Fold, we don't beat much. Now even Qx beats us.

      Best regards.
