      Hi ninuu,

      Preflop: Don't like the squeeze here. MP1 is mid-stacks, by raising you're gonna make him pot committed postflop, and your hand are not strong enough postflop. If you think you have an edge against them(loose) it's better to call and only play your hand if you have something.

      Flop: You got nothing and you can only fold here. You're probably already behind, he might have a set or flush draw here, or even OESD if he is loose.

      Turn: Definitely fold here. You don't have the right pot odds to call. And you have to complete your flush to win(though you might still lose to higher flush).

      Hello ninuu,

      Preflop: Well, even if you squeeze here then do it properly. Read articles about the raise size. :) Which actually should be 3x raise + 1 caller = $0,32.

      As played
      Postflop: Standard fold right on flop. :) You don't beat much.

      Best regards.
