      Feel I played this well.

      Draws and Mid Pairs could be calling so I bet for value.

      I should have also bet the River for a little thin value from mid pairs also as I can split with other Ax anyway?

      Hi Matt,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I don't mind taking initiative on the flop but our bet is very thin on both streets. We only get value from some draws and some pairs as we don't beat any Ax hands or 5x. We would need to fold to any raise.
