      IMHO it'd be hard to get more so GG from me.

      Fold pre.

      Haha, j/k, wp.

      TBH though I wouldn't complete unless it was suited. As played though, it's a nh.

      I'd fold pf, 32o if a terrible hand for a straight, and it's offsuited so forget the flush draw too. I'd never play with that hand.

      Fold preflop, also fold 32s, and fold any suited connector till at least T9s. You will say "Hey, they're speculative hands, and it's only half a BB!". That is correct, but not the whole truth. To be profitable, they need big pots when they hit. It's hard to get a lot of action in an unraised pot (You just learned this in this hand!), it's hard to get action oop and noone seems to be strong. This is a major leak. Don't call with crap in the SB. Even raising is beter imo, but i suggest fold.

      As played:

      You go for the c/r. Normally that only will win you one extra bet, as villain will fold, i suggest you lead out, and start building the big pot that you need to win for al the times when your beatiful 32o doesn't hit. If noone calls you, noone would give you action anyway, so you didn't lost that much.

      Lead out on turn en river are ok.

      I´d fold 32o pf.
      And play my flopped straight fast by betting and raising in every street.
