      Preflop I didn't 3bet because I often give credit to the UTG openraising ranges of regulars. the sample was not high enough though to have a precise idea of his positionnal awareness with his PFR.

      On the flop things are fine, so far my line looks like a float.

      On the turn I don't like my check behind, however I did not want my float to work :D

      River is nice card because on J8 got in, which is not likely. I decide to overbet for value, trying to look like a stealer hoping for the overpair to call.

      I don't like my turn check behind and my overbet river, I think his call is ugly on that spot. I just though that the only hands which could call me were overpairs, and that a standard bet would be looking like a valuebet against overpairs.

      6-handed I´d raise flop, since:
      - you´re hu, so he can easily put you on draw or that you´re making move, so I doubt he would b/f Tx+
      - you sometimes want to attack these board, so it is nice if you have there also sets in your range

      I´d bet/call turn, since you want to build pot and if he is giving up then you really don´t get any more money out of him.

      River overbet should be fine
