      Hey Daisuke3823,

      Preflop open is fine.

      Flop cbet is good. There are available draws + BB is likely a fish and can easily call with worse here.

      I don't mind a second-barrel on turn so long as you keep the sizing small. Under half pot will do. You can get value from JT/QJ, 9x, spade-draws + you have outs vs a better Kx.

      Turn - I would call if the board wasn't paired. On paired board I would fold. You don't quite have the direct odds you need to call and the paired board damages your implieds here. I'd bet/fold turn here.

      River fold is fine.

      I would usually check behind on the flop. Your TP is weak so won't get called by much worse. Check the turn if you did cbet. You kind of want to pot control and since you already bet flop it's hard to keep the pot reasonably small, definitely won;t happen if you bet turn.

      When you get the almost minraise, calling with the FD is fine ofc.
