      1)PreFlp vs fish limpers IP I IsOr.
      2)On flop in mwp on that semi wetflop vs 2 fishes i should have chkb because i dont see them folding any SD,FD.
      3)On turn my hand improves so i decided to call his bet.
      4)On river the Flush complets so against his bet i decided to fold because i saw him very passive and i belived his bet is for value and i am behind his range.

      1) I think your isoraises are too small in general. I would add 1-2 more BB. Remember that this is NL2, where people love cold calling a lot, and they rarely 3bet with weak hands. As a result, raising larger makes more sense.

      -Vs larger raise sizes, people are less likely to overcall = Fewer multi-way situations
      -Vs aggressive 3betters, we want to raise smaller so that we lose less money when we are forced to fold - larger raises are fine at lower limits vs more passive players

      2) Flop bet is kind of iffy. I like that we have the Ace of spade and 2 overs, and that the board is paired. But the board is low and coordinated and there's a flush draw on the board. Taking all things into consideration, I think both options are pretty close. You must bet spade turns though, and you can also bluff rep cards like the King.

      3) I'm calling Turn for sure. River sucks, odds are good, flush draw got there, club draw missed, straight draws missed, some of these fishes may bet randomly with 7X here, or even c/c Flop with AX and donk the Turn and River with AJ or AT which we beat. We also have As which reduces the likelihood of him having a nut flush here and the raise size is small anyway which makes it less likely that he has a monster.

      Taking all things into consideration I would probably call here.
