      UTG wins $2.65


      I was betting on the flop since I had a lot of outs and Villain did not show any strength... I thought I could force him to fold - or if he doesn't, I could complete a flush or straight on the turn or river... Was I too aggressive?

      Hello feketepok,

      Preflop: The question is why did you 3bet here, I don't really think that KQo is a good hand to 3bet. Or do you have a specific reason to do so?

      As played
      Flop: Considering it's NL2 I wouldn't even try to CBet there into multiway pot since I often expect to get Called, wouldn't be a mistake if we just Check behind there and hope for a hit on turn.

      As played
      Turn: Would likely give it up here, no point to just Call with our draws. We will rarely face such hand what you did show in result and even against that hand we are behind.

      Best regards.
