      Hello clandestineAl,

      Preflop: I wouldn't really recommend playing those type of hands from UTG, it will be hard for you to extract value with them playing them OOP. At least MP2+ would be my advice. Of course it's not the case that you can't play the hands profitable but most likely you will face way too often problematic situations as which even happened.

      As played
      Postflop: Again the hand where your 2nd barrel size is a leak. I mean do you really think he is going to fold any Kx here? Also you kinda representing with the bet size exactly the hand you have which is a draw. Rather make it a normal bet size or just Check it and reevaluate further actions.

      Best Regards.
