      I don't like at all how I played the hand. reviewing it myself it is a fold preflop and then as played a fold on flop. at the time I was think to float in position but a float is a bluff and no better hand would fold. I won the hand and my bet was a value bet/protection bet. but I did it totally for the wrong reasons at the time. Can I played this hand for value as played or is it an easyfold pre/post?

      Hey thazar,

      Do you have any stats/reads on UTG? Usually I would try to isolate a limper with QJs from LP.

      As played, I like your postflop line, but the reasons are:

      - on the flop, you don't have a hand strong enough to go broke and on the other hand TPQK is too strong to give up against c-bet.

      - on the turn, you have a clear bet/fold. You have to get value from draws and maybe some second pairs and worse top pairs.

      - on the river, all the all draws but QT missed and you can't get any more value from those as well as I think no worse made hand will call your river barrel, so I like the cb.
