      Hey pantasrb,

      Preflop: Is there any particular reason why you 3bet so small?

      Usually a larger 3bet will work better especially out-of-position - it's useful to have some fold-equity here for the times when you are bluffing. Balance is not overly important at these stakes but it is recommended you get into good habits and make your 3bets a little larger.

      Flop: It's probably fine to check/fold the flop. Decent amount of draws that will not be folding etc. You also have less fold equity due to your min 3bet preflop.

      Turn + River are fine, I wouldn't bet again with this hand.
