      Never limp 98o in 10 handed game. You can´t call re-raise, your hand is often dominated by overpairs, you´re playing oop and there are 8 people to act behind you.
      No need to overbet the turn 0,5 or 0,4$ is fine amount and you´re get called anyway A high or flushdraw/flush. And you should fold if someone re-raise, so you´re getting the same information in lower price.
      I like your check on the river, someone could easily hold higher flush and hard to imagine that someone would call with weaker hand on the river.

      Thanks for info, and i'm glad i didn't do anything totaly stupid. I didn't limp but payed bb for entering the game so I was on freeplay (i think).
