      Not entirely sure what the best way to approach this is, but I think there's merit to check/folding on the flop. You've missed completely and it appears as if you're playing something of a calling station OOP.

      Hello Imimba1,

      Preflop: Learn the basics how much to raise. :P 4bb + 1bb every limper + 1bb being OOP. :P
      Postflop: Check/Fold the flop, you don't even have backdoors nor any draw. Also wont have much fold equity on those boards.

      Best Regards.

      If I raise more, then I loose more money in this hand.
      Or it's just better, because these loose players call it anways, and it's going to be easier to stack them+ I want a HU pot.

      Why would you lose more money if you clearly raising for value. :(

      I'm most likely going to miss postflop. Then what?
      My only advantage that they arent agressive, so I could check it down possibly.

      Missing doesn't always mean that we are giving up. :)

      After I watch a post, and think that I need some time to really digest it and fully understand it, I write a dot, so I can see that I watched it e.g. on november 5.

      I watch it after 3 days again, and if I still dont understand it fully, I write one again, and it's just a matter of time until I get it. :)
