      Was it correct decision to check on flop, then call?
      Was it correct to call on turn and river? I was afraid of flush, so i did not wanted to invest into the pot.

      Again try and include the stack sizes in the stats.

      Just check/fold that flop in my opinion, it's very ugly they might have you drawing to 3 clean 8 outs or runner runner stuff already, it supposedly crushes MP2's range for calling you preflop. You'll save yourself money by staying away from these spots.

      As played donk/fold that turn, your hand might be good and that guy could have a pair and a one card flush draw or something. If he raises tho you probably have to assume he hit the flush.

      Hope it helps.
