      Hello ryciaga,

      Welcome to the NL 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, I don't like that much your min-raise on the flop. It's just way too drawy to give him good odds if he is even drawing. I'd most likely raise it bigger ~$0,90 at least and maybe even bigger. But of course we are gonna play for the stacks. We can't really fold here while the guy could easily have a lot of worse combos.

      Best Regards.
