      Hi Daisuke,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Since our hand is so weak and we can be behind to many pairs that play like this I would simply fold. Even overcards have good equity versus us and can make us fold on pretty much any turn/river.

      So simply folding is NOT a mistake.
