      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      Preflop: Most likely I wouldn't be flatting in first place here, you giving opponents behind you to squeeze, also loose opponents might flat into the pot. Rather 3bet it while I doubt that we dominate many of his UTG hand range.

      As played
      Postflop: What are you trying to represent with the raise on the flop? But otherwise not much to comment, most likely were beaten by FH.

      Best Regards.

      Would you float the flop veriz? Or just fold?

      Depends how I see the opponent but floating can still be done here vs his whole range while he seems to be opening a bit more hands and being more looser so far. Especially if you flatting like that preflop which means you kind of have to put him on a weaker opening range cause flatting doesn't really make sense if we wouldn't assume him having weaker Kx/Qx hands in the range.

      I raised flop because I expect very wide range from him and with a very flop + a not expected great player thought bluffing would be good here.

      Would you float and steal the pot on the turn vs an aggressive opponent in order to represent more value hands?

      But you don't have many 9x hands nor any FH wouldn't ever raise. So yeah, rather float if you want to pick anything at all.
