      fold pre (dominated too often).

      flop: bet bigger, 22c around there. you are 3way and board is super wet so need to protect. you will also get called down with a wide range of hands on flop

      turn: bet again. fds/sds/tx/gutters are all still calling and we want to build up a pot for a river shove. if we had bet .22 on flop, we could bet ~.50c on turn.

      river: as played just shove it in vs pot bet. not much else we can do. villain could play all 7x hands this way, and we only lose to T9/TT which is a small part of villain's range and would often bet or check/raise flop.

      tough hand though

      Hi Kalimann,

      Preflop: Why are we limping this hand behind and then calling a raise? It's a very bad hand to play and it's offsuite too. Even the suited version would be too weak to play in most cases.

      So this should be an easy fold preflop.

      Postflop: As played why not bet larger? Board is really wet and we want value/protection.

      Why are we checking the turn? For all intents and purposes that card is a blank and we are now not afraid of draws but we also don't want to lose value from them so we should bet. Get value from Tx, 9x, draws.
