      Hi Matt,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I would like to raise that flop larger for value/protection to about 0.65 or so.

      While the turn is not the greatest card we still have value form worse Kx and draws so a bet is fine. We should look at bet/folding.

      I think that on the river we can raise to $1.2-$1.5 for thin value.

      Out of curiosity, If Villian was to 3 on the flop, It's going to be a fold nearly every time for us without any reads ?

      Donk/3-bet from someone that's not overly loose or aggro is rarely a bluff or weak hand so I agree with you that we are looking at bet/folding there.
