      Anything to add on this hand?

      Figured shoving river was best play for value, maybe could have got a call with a smaller bet?

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Preflop: Boh, not a huge fan actually limping in here unless I expect the blinds be very loose. UTG doesn't have much of stack anyways. :D

      As played
      Postflop: Yeah, you could raise bigger the turn. I'd make it even ~$0,80 :) and ship the river.

      Best regards.

      UTG's small stack was the problem.

      If I raise when it gets back to him I figure that there is a good chance he will push his remaining few chips, which then obliges me to call with a hand I'm not happy about shoving pre-flop.

      Happy to call a raise from the blinds as they are deeper and gives me a better chance to win a decent amount.
