      Preflop: I don't like your play here. UTG makes a limp/call and then you go for such a small 4bet. You want to play HU, so I would make a bigger raise to see how strong is his hand. I would raise to $3,95.

      Flop: Flop is not so good for us so I prefer checking behind because with pot being so big we can expect c/r from him often if he has A.

      Turn: I would go for smallish bet here - $3. He might call us with JJ, QQ or even 99. If we see a c/r we're out. I prefer betting over giving him free card because he might fold here and we take it right away. And if we get called we get free showdown in many cases.

      River: He checks for the third time which shows the ultimate weakness. Despite that I don't like betting here. He might have some 2 pair combo, some straight or even weakish A. And we don't get value from baby pairs or Tx. We might get value just from KQ, QJ but I don't see this cards in his limp/call/call preflop range. I would therefore check behind here.

      I would play differently preflop - raise more and on the turn with small value bet.

      Hello Paszczi01,

      Why do you almost min-raise preflop? There is even a guy who flats there, I'd definitely do it bigger ~$4 at least.

      Otherwise seems to be fine, it's not a huge mistake to even take a passive approach while it's a 4bet pot and they will anyways have hard time Calling with a lot worse. Another possibility would to bet the turn if you think he is capable of paying with worse PPs.

      Best Regards.
