      Raise preflop.

      As played:
      Why are you check/raising the turn? Nothing worse will call you. Rather just call the $0.02.
      Nothing you could do on the river. Only 33 and 5, 4 beats you.

      preflop is fine as per the starting hands chart. i'd prefer a raise myself but this hand doesn't have super great playability out of position so completing is fine if you are not too sure.

      lead flop! you are likely to have the best hand, but it absolutely needs protection against overcards and FD.

      as played, FD and 54 got there, but vs the minbet we can just call because he could be blocking with some 65/67 type of hand.
      when you c/r what worse do you think that is calling you there? these hands could call but you'll mostly be called by better hands.

      on the river you can't ever get away. :f_biggrin:
      hands that beat you are 2 combos (33/5 4), while 22/66 are 6 combos and you might even see something like KK+ or A3 from time to time :D
