      Hello foulkezboyz,

      Preflop: Rather isolate yourself than limp in those hands. Of course we have a dead-blind poster but we are going to be OOP.

      As played
      Postflop: Raise it for thin value on the river. :)

      Best Regards.

      What about the raise on the flop? Why not just call and give MP3 a chance to call?

      The raise size is also small.

      Raising is totally fine there, why would it be even wrong if we know that we might even make a lot better hands to fold. A lot of PPs/Ace high/maybe even King high or whatsoever could be leading. But could do a bit bigger.

      Overall I do like the idea of semi-bluffing flop with a FD but my concern is that its NL 2. Lately at these low limits NL 2- NL 10 I always try to play my draws passively as people call down loser and might even call a bluff raise from me here. Do you think I'm being a bit result oriented in making this adjustment?

      Most likely just result oriented. And as I said we should already be more aggressive preflop than limp it in, if we want to play those hands.
