      Hello delanonunes,

      Preflop: You could easily even isolate here if you want to play the hand. :)

      As played
      Postflop: I'd rather lay it down on turn. We could already be against flushes or even stronger hands. But as played the river is that we don't beat much, he is never betting pot size with just 2pairs/sets but rather at least has Jx or even strong, a lot of flushes are also in his range. I'd just fold it on river.

      Well, for beginners those kind of call-downs are pretty standard. You just have to start avoid them by forcing making yourself to fold in those spots. For example posting those hands and then get reviewed by others will definitely help you out with it. After you get negative feedback you will start to avoid it next time.

      Best regards.
