      Hi,

      Slightly passive play could have cost you perhaps. Maybe a raise pre-flop of 0.06 or 0.08 takes it down. On the flop a club draw appears and you should protect your hand so you're bet on the flop is ok. On the turn a lot of draws complete so a check/call is probably better. Same on river, a 4 completes a straight so again a check/call or even check/fold is probably better. Betting out inflates the pot and puts you in a difficult situation if you get raised or shoved on.

      Thanks

      Hello Sikac,

      Seems to be fine, he definitely has even worse hands in his range, PPs/draws/Tx hands. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.
