      Hello Krishjanis,

      Preflop: Fold the hand without having great postflop edge on him or either stats.

      As played
      Postflop: Why do you raise so small on the flop and Bet so small on the turn? Make pot size raise on flop & bet bigger on the turn. ;) Giving perfect odds for any draw. And of course there is no value on river anymore as long FD completes.

      Best Regards.
