      Hey guys!

      vill: 58/9/3,1 after 35 hands

      pre: probably a mistake not to raise it up here.

      flop: I don't really want to bet because he has a lot of Ax hands here I think.

      turn: I expect him to bet all his Ax hands otf so I think I'm good here plus I have 2 pair. When he raises I was confused but his raise was so small I leveled myself into calling.

      river: against this tiny bet I can't fold. Plus it's a blank and if I think I'm good ott I'm still good on that river.

      Preflop: This is a huge mistake. If you had something like K6s or Q8s then checking is fine. but KJs really crushes a typical limper's range.

      Flop: I think checking here is reasonable.

      Turn: We have two pairs, he could potentially have some semi bluffs, and potentially some worse 2 pairs. Given the odds he is giving us I am not folding here. I would consider folding most one pair hands though, especially those without a heart.
