      Hello hooley01,

      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!

      Preflop: Don't limp in such hands. Raise them up!

      As played
      Postflop: Kind of overplayed your hand. Raising the turn of course is fine to do it for value but I don't really see any hands which we beat on the river anymore. Flush beats us, FH beats us. Standard fold for me.

      Best Regards.
