      Hi all

      Would appreciate some overall advice on this hand. I think I played well but not entirely sure.

      Anything I could have done differently? Particularly on the turn?

      Hi,


      I usually raise pretty much any two cards over a SB limper, unless i have reasons not to, like him being a huge check/call machine. But you'll make tons of free money against players who constantly limp/fold or limp/call check/fold SBvsBB.

      Postflop without reads is okay, but if he's at all passive in general i'm already not happy about him check/minraising the turn, so i might sometimes fold the river.


      Hope it helps.
