      Guess i was very lucky UTG2 was all-in cheaply or i could have been in a world of hurt (he showed KJ in the end).... did i play this too aggressively? should i have been worrying about a higher draw and maybe play a little more passive?

      Hello delanonunes,

      Preflop: Horrible raise size here. :( You have 3 limpers don't ya? Or you raising according the hand strength? Standard raise would be $0,35. :)

      As played
      Postflop: I don't like raising here at all. I mean from what worse you gonna get called? You are just isolating yourself against better hands. Just Call and be happy if you even win the pot. Could be already against 2pairs/sets. Better Kx are even possible.

      Best regards.
