      Hello,

      Preflop is fine.

      On the flop I like check/folding here.
      Board is rather dry here, so cbetting might not be a good option, and when we face a bet and a call (although the bet is small) I think folding is fine.
      We can't really call comfortably here since we have two more streets to play on, so just give up here rather than investing 3bb only to fold the turn.

      Best,
      Plamen
