      Again, this felt okay to play this way but any thoughts??
      I was going to cut it at the CR on the flop but also wanted to get thoughts on turn too.

      Interesting spot.

      I think that calling here is rather acceptable since the raise is quite small and we have position.
      In my opinion if villain had a decent hand he would go for a bigger raise considering that we are deeper, so I would rather call and reevaluate on the turn.

      Turn doesn't change anything so I think calling is fine.

      On the river I think checking back is good.

      Nice hand.
