      Hi.

      As a general rule of thumb, don't raise for value if you are not willing to play for stacks vs a re-raise.

      In this case, you have wrongly identified your hand as one which is strong enough to raise for value. Just call because your hand is considered as a medium strength hand on this monotone flop. Hope to dodge some spades and you can call down the Turn always and maybe even the river as well.

      Just fold on spade Turns/Rivers.

      Thanks.
