      Hello SnoWonder,

      I think you should raise a bit bigger preflop. UTG is a fishy player who plays way to many hands so when they call $1.2 raise, they also call $1.4 or $1.5 for example. The advantage is that you get more value and isolate yourself more vs fish and push out those 14/11 and 9/6 nitty players!

      As played I would bet bigger on the Flop and shove the Turn by default like u did! :) nice!

      Best regards,
      Gerv
