      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:diamond: , J:club:
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls $0.02, MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.02, MP3 calls $0.02, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.01, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.10) A:heart: , T:heart: , 8:spade: (5 players)
      Hero bets $0.08, BB folds, UTG2 calls $0.08, MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0.08.

      Hero bets $0.2, UTG2 calls $0.20, MP3 calls $0.20.

      River: ($0.94) 2:heart: (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.46, 2 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.94

      I know that in unraised pots you are supposed to have a better hand than if you raised yourself, so was top pair good kicker good enough to bet into 4 other players? Was it right to bet on the river even though the flush draw hit?

      First of all,you should raise preflop.Maybe add one BB for being OOP.As played,I believe you could make a smaller bet on the river(block bet) of around $0.25.

      Hello BreadWarden,

      Preflop: Raise it here than complete with the hand. Your AJo ain't a very good hand OOp and facing so many opponents.

      As played
      Postflop: Well, not much to do here. You could bet a bit bigger on turn but it ain't a huge mistake. River bet is kinda thin but doable, most likely myself I'd just Check/Fold there vs 2 opponents.

      Best Regards.
