      Hero wins 23.3 BB

      10 hands, VPiP 60.

      Is it ok to just call? I notice that people usually open 2BB with PP, or suited conncetors, and more BB with strong cards. So I was tempting to 3bet but I didn't because he is EP.

      Is my bet for value turn and river ok? Once he checks behind Q high, I don't think he has it, but some PP, or 8x.

      Preflop is fine imo, I prefer calling instead of 3betting.

      Postflop, I don't know if you can get 2 streets of value. I would check the turn usually and call a bet or play rivers. You will have the best hand on the river often enough and also be able to get that 1 street of value.
