      Total pot: $4.60 | Rake: $0.30

      My line of thought at the time.

      On the flop it was only a min raise and even though I rarely do that I sometimes do have a look at cheap flops.

      on the flop I had a gut shot not great but a raise of 2/3 and a caller making interesting pot odds and possibly nicer implied odds.

      turn and river I have top pair and weak kicker. I am probably behind but villain is betting weak and he could be on a draw or just a Qx. So I call because only because of the weak bet. trying to get to showdown as cheap as possible.

      Should I have folded preflop? on the flop? should I have raised at any time?

      I hesitated on raising the turn because I interpreted the weak bet as 2 possibilities either he had KQ or a weak hand.

      Hey thazar,

      preflop I would prefer to just fold the hand even though you have double stack, because when you make such a call you have to play for 2-pair+ and even when you hit it's hard to extract value OOP. Sometimes I don't even call this with full stack.

      On the flop, you have 3 clean outs because of FD possibility, so I would just fold the hand and also pot odds aren't good enough for so few outs with 3.5:1.

      Turn and river are standard call down for me.
