      Hi,
      Was check/raise on the flop too much, should I have played check/call?
      Was the river bet too big/too small/unnecessary?

      Thanks!

      On the flop you have only weak FD and board is paired so I give you maybe 7-8 outs and therefore just play your draw passively according to outs/odds. I would call flop and evaluate turn.

      As played, river bet seems fine to me.

      Btw, you can only play draws aggressively in freeplay when you have 12+ outs.

      Thank you burek2k,

      If you have a monster draw for example, I c/r bigger to like $1 postflop
