      PRE
      Standard.

      FLOP
      There are some worse hands, that can call.

      TURN
      Tx and draws are still calling, so I`m 2-barreling.

      RIVER
      I potted, because he seemed passive and I thought he would play Jx this way.
      Anyway, I had to bet smaller vs all his range.

      Hi Diena,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Think about what you target on the river and go after that range.

      If you target weaker made hands you have to bet smaller however weaker made hands either have 2p (Tx) or some sort of straight which we split with. So going for a bigger bet is probably better.
