      Hello Philfox1985,

      Preflop: Just fold it preflop. :D What you gonna hit with such a hand and being OOP?

      As played
      Postflop: Well, seems to be somewhat legit but kinda close spot on the river. While it's just a freeplay pot I might even sometimes just Check/Fold while FD completed. Thin value.

      Best Regards.
