      0.10/0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (4 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.9 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 7:spade: , 8:spade:
      Hero calls $0.25, 2 folds, BB checks.

        I felt the table was passive, so decided to limp. Would betting have been a better choice?

      Flop: ($0.60) 4:heart: , K:diamond: , T:spade: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: ($0.60) A:spade: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.25, BB calls $0.25.

        Perhaps should have bet more?

      River: ($1.10) 5:spade: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.75, Hero calls $0.75.

        Call or re-raise?

      Final Pot: $2.60

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      BB shows [ Ad, 5c ] two pairs, Aces and Fives
      Hero shows [ 7s, 8s ] a flush, Ace high
      Hero wins $2.47 USD with a flush, Ace high.

      I would raise preflop, either bet more or check turn, and definetly raise river.

      Try not to open a pot by limping. If you don't feel comfortable raising here you should tend to fold. As played your semi bluff on the turn has to be bigger because you want villain to fold here. Raising riveer i given you may extract value from sets, 2pairs and even TP
