      Hi Matt,

      Preflop: I don't like calling these type of connectors there despite the "good" odds that we get. I would also not 3-bet and just fold.

      Keep in mind that anything your hand flops, including 2p, is usually very weak. And we only flop 2p+ less than 5% of the time and OESD about 10% of the time. And if we flop 1p we can just fold the hand.

      Postflop: As played I would not go for a ck/raise but rather simply bet out for value/protection into such a big field.

      As played giving up is fine.
