      1) What do you think of the call pre?

      2) Is this way ahead/way behind post flop call down, or overplayed?

      Thankyou

      Hey Feraldave,

      I guess preflop call is alright just because you get an excellent price. However we don't have much info on SB's range - and when we have no clue if his range is wide or tight it can make decision making a little tough postflop.

      Flop call is standard.

      By the turn you should be questioning the strength of your hand. Most opponents at 2nl won't barrel a worse hand than yours on the turn like this.
      Turn call is ok but super borderline, folding wouldn't be ridiculous.

      By the river I think you have to fold. It's true opponent could be on a stone cold bluff, but with no information on how he plays we should probably assume the frequency with which he is likely to do this is not high enough that we can profitably call.
