      Hey Ramadas,


      Equitywise Q8s is a very bad hand to openraise & play. Generally on your limits, being solid & tight pays of so much compared to higher stakes. People have no clue what they are doing on this limit so you want to minimize the variance & speculation by not playing this hand.

      I would either bet normally on the Turn or just go directly all-in because it is clear he is not folding his Ax ever or Qx

      But I think your biggest leak is playing too many hands which is not good in the long term

      Best regards,
      Gerv
