      Hello Imimba1,

      Preflop: And once again, why do you Call here? :) Does the chart tell you to do that or what's the reason?

      As played
      Postflop: What do you mean by bet thinner? You wont get called anyways there from a lot worse hands, so just make a realistic 1/2 pot size bet. If they call min-bet then most likely also 1/2 pot size.

      Best Regards.

      Preflop: Good speculative hand imo? It's most likely going to be multiway because of BB, and I have a straight possibility. Or it's not so important if it's off-suit?
      I'm in position, it sounds ... good.

      As long we know you have rather bigger leaks postflop and wasting a lot money there then not really + such a hand ain't good for multiway, only SD boards are good for you in multiway pot and that's it. With a pair you will rarely know where you stand.

      Don't call the hand just cause you think it has overcards or pair outs, you have to understand also why you doing this. Cause with such a call you are putting yourself exactly in those situations where you have had yourself in early hands where you waste 1BI into nothing. Rather play tighter early game and try to learn it and then start loosening up.
