      UTG+1- VPIP- 96, PFR- 56, AF- 1.6, WTSD- 50, Hands- 50
      UTG+2- 37, 0, 1, 40, 27

      Flop- I was not afraid oh UTG2 because of his stack and passiveness, I tryed to optimalise my play against UTG1. Post flop, he was a calling station if someone else bet into him and nearly always bet if checked to him. I thought he could call 2 streats of big bets with a FD and 3 streets with a pair if the 4th spade doesn't arrive.

      Turn- I was still trying to get value from pairs and FDs. I didn't want to overbet so didn't put him AI (that guy actually might call with much worse in that spot so I don't think it would be -EV)

      River- Q high FD now beats me, but he has only 50c left and now I can beat random 2pair from the flop.

      Was it OK to play the hand so aggressively against 2 VERY weak, not even full stacked opponent?

      Thanks and best wishes!

      Hello Dback357,

      For the given odds it's anyways hard to fold the river. I would very likely go for ship on turn as well vs his stack. Kinda complicated to Check/Fold there while only $0,50 left.

      Best regards.
