      Preflop: I don't want to say limping is bad, it could be ok in early positions at a very loose/passive table. I would presume that NL2-5 is loose and passive at FR, like most live games so I think limp/call 22-77 from EP is fine.

      At a tighter table I think you should not have a limping range, just raise it yourself.

      Postflop: I think the c/c F c/r T line is standard, I like it. River you definitely cannot bet for value any longer and your hand is merely a bluff catcher.

      KQ got there, T8/98 got there, you beat stuff like busted flush draws though, so I think it's probably ok to call a 1/3 pot bet as you only need to win 20% of the time.

      Pot odds offered to you = 20 / (20+20+61.4) = ~19-20%
