      - Preflop is this ok just calling min raise with Ax suited?
      - I flop the nuts and I should raise for protection right? I foolishly thought it didn't need protecting and that I could keep both in the hand by not raising then.
      - Turn is scary but I figure I have to call.
      - The 8 on river gives any Queen or 8 a full house and I have to fold.

      Flop is the bad bit right? Should've raised it up. I thought a check-raise might look too strong however.

      Pfr: OK
      Flop: I would donk/raise to get it in here. Mostly villain has a worse flush if he raises your donk.
      Turn: If you didnt get it in on the flop, do it now. Especially when you get raised you need to go for the shove and not just call..

      Once MP2 bets pot, don´t think he would get away his hand, so I´d just c/r him small, smt like 1,4$, then bet 2/3 pot and likely c/f river.
      Although he would likely nut just call down there with aces, but shove over your c/r.
