      Hello diversfx,

      Add to full stack.

      Preflop: Somehow it seems that you are just playing too many hands. Unless you really have good postflop skills I wouldn't advice to play such a hand from this position, mostly you will be playing OOP in such spots. You can try Checking your tracking program, maybe it has the feature that shows you play those hands preflop from UTG and will get your answer. But of course you need good sample for it.

      As played
      Postflop: I'd actually even bet it bigger on flop ~$0,12+. Otherwise it's pretty close. He may sometimes have the GS like AJ,AT of course but as well he may even trap us with some strong pairs/made straights even. There ain't that many worse 2pairs. But of course could consider raising smallish like ~$0,40 which is for thin value. And just calling and taking a loot into his hand should be fine as well.

      Best regards.

      I dropped down to this level so I could try some strange lines,and play looser. With out any major damage to my BR. It was on a new site and I was getting a feel for the software play.

      Then you should have tried to raise the river as well. :D
