      On such board on the flop, should I give up on the hand (check only) if I don't have two pair or straight?

      I know I bet too small preflop (distracted/misclicked).

      Hello ramadas,

      Preflop: On such a spot you might even want to 3bet it preflop over just calling, we don't want to turn it into multiway pot and then have difficult time to play it and might even overplay your hand.

      As played
      Postflop: Seems to be fine.

      Best Regards.
