      Preflop: I don't generally feel comfortable raising such type of hands (22-88) in this spot and that's why I just completed.
      Postflop: Would it be better to just call flop and raise the turn or the river? Are my betsizes good?

      Preflop: I think limping behind 2 other limpers with small suited connectors and small pocketpairs (22-77) is fine. I would iso-raise 88+ here. No point iso-raising if you cannot achieve the isolation effect (getting to play headsup vs one other player). When we get raised, it's kind of ugly when we have to call so much more but it's pretty similar to a 3b pot situation so I think it's fine.

      Flop: We have some options here. Lead or check. But i don't like leading when the flop is one which is likely to be stabbed at. Middling, coordinated boards tend to be attacked less frequently so I would prefer leading out on those boards.

      Here i'll check/raise to a size similar to yours. We find that there's 2/3 pot left on the River which seems like a good bet size to me. I don't like calling with multiple people in the hand, we just give them such good odds to draw to a flush.
