      i need some comfirmation that my own reviewing of this hand is correct:

      I floped the nuts IP and checked the turn to go for XR.
      On the turn i guess i bet WAY to light. i should have overbet the pot to protect my made hand and get the flush draws off the hand while giving potential 78 holder bad odds to call another street.

      I dont have to say to much to the river except i snap called without thinking... costing me big money. very stupid mistake but it happens.

      Fold preflop. The hand looks good, but it's pretty dominated and it's likely to put us in a lot of trouble postflop.

      Definitely bet the flop. We have the nuts and we want to build up the pot in order to put the money in until the river.

      Bet bigger on the turn - $0.12.

      On the river I like your bet, but when he shoves it's an easy fold.
      FD got there, some boats possible also.

      Could you please explain why i should fold IP vs a minraise for 1bb preflop?

      Because on this limit we want to play strong ABC poker, and this does not involve calling 43s.

      Problem with this hand is that:
      - we don't have the initiative so we can't pick up the pots more easily
      - we are most likely to hit bottom pairs with which we are going to have trouble calling even on one street
      - even if we hit two pair we won't be comfortable to stack off
      - our flush draw is dominated and we can easily get overflushed
