      Hi,

      need opinion on this hand. I raised half pot on flop to test the water. Folded on turn. Did I play this hand good?

      Thanks

      In such early positions at 2nl we can isolate slightly bigger.

      Considering we got called by 4 people and 2 on the flop I'd give up on the hand as well. The chance that one player has Ax is rather high.
