      Yeah, you need to raise this one preflop to around 12 cents.

      Flop we can bet 3/4 to 4/5 pot.

      Turn we need to protect and bet 3/4 again. You don't want villain to check behind there at all!

      River I would check/call vs aggressive opponents and bet/call vs passive opponents most likely.

      Hello jimmy21492,

      Welcome to the English NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Preflop: Raise it up, why would you complete the hand? This is super weak and as we see you HARDLY overplay your hand postflop.

      As played
      Turn: Why would you Check/Raise the turn? You are just isolating against very strong hands there. Rather lead it out and avoid him checking behind.

      As played
      River: Check/Fold it cause FD also got there, FHs possible. You don't beat much. If anything to do at all then Bet it yourself.

      Best Regards.
