      wasnt really sure what to do throughout this hand, c/c flp is okay i guess, i could bet myself,
      turn is kinda questionable i guess....

      river i just called like a nit, was a little worried about a flush/KT, also i didnt think worse can call my shove

      Preflop raising is fine with our hand, but considering the bigger stacks I'd make it 5bb or even 5.5.

      Well to be honest I do prefer folding the flop for the following reasons:
      - our draw is just so bad - if we had we are going to have a hard time extracting value out of him because our draw is so obvious
      - he donks into three opponents so he bust be having a good hand.

      I'd just let it go and find a better spot.

      On the turn it's close between calling and folding and IP calling is a little bit better, because we do get the right pot odds.
      The disadvantage is that we are just having a weak draw (again just with one card), also the straight outs could not be clear and the 8 :club: isn't going to be clear as well, so I prefer giving it up here.

      On the river calling is fine.
      Raising will be an overplay here.
