      Hi Stu,

      We always give honest opinions, or at least I try to :)

      Preflop: Why are we minraising here OOP vs BB? We should make it 3x at least to prevent BB from getting such great odds.

      Postflop: As played we should bet/fold the flop. Why are we bet/calling? Our hand is weak at best and we play OOP.

      On the turn I can't see why you are shoving. Do you really expect many worse hands to call us there?
