      I think preflop I would raise the full amount to 4bb + 2bb for the limpers = 60c. I tend to like the school of thought that raises just a tad bigger when you are OOP.

      I like the river check. Your opponent floated two major bets and the board is scary as hell. A draw completed on the turn and the river!

      Walk us through your line on the turn. What are you going to do if he raises? Push? There's a lot of draws out now and the board is getting more dangerous. If he's going to fold to a pot size bet he would probably fold to 2/3rds as well.

      well on the turn i would play bet/call ,i think that 7 of spades didn't complete to many draws,maybe just made two pair for like 97 or 57,or maybe j8 get there.Just thinking about ship it allin on the turn myself to avoid ugly spot on the river..luckily here he checked

      Agree with tokyoaces on the preflop $0.6-$0.7, 31/12 and 32/8 guys won't care that it's $0.1-$0.2 more.

      Flop is fine, i'd bet $3 on the turn and either call it off or fold to a jam depending on whether i think SB can spazz shove if his drawing hand improved somehow. I don't mind folding for $6 into $10 on a club river if SB donkjams it, he has more clubs in his range than QJ and he's not playing Tx like that.

      Hope it helps.
