      UTG+2 Stats: VPIP: 9, PFR: 2, 3B: 1, AF: 2.4, Hands: 3465

      This one gave me an headache.
      Please analyze it as deeply as possible with all the possible ranges of my enemies.

      My idea on the flop was to make at least 1 of them fold, and isolate myself against 1.
      It didn't work, but I got a flush on the turn and SB check'd, therefore I decided to bet, but both of them call.
      On the river, paired board: at this point I decided that a check was anyway too weak for my flush, and go for a bet/fold, because of their probable improved sets into Full House.

      How is my thought process?
      What do I lack?

      Hello AtrociousNightmare,

      Their ranges are mainly going to be PPs which might have a set on the flop cause UTG is pretty nitty. Only guy who would have wider range is SB.

      Flop: But why would you want to raise the flop? You ain't making any Ax to fold and nor you ain't making better FD to fold. So doesn't make sense. At the best we could just Call and reevaluate the turn.

      As played
      Turn: Not much to comment.

      As played
      River: Assuming that they had a lot of PPs in their range which could even be sets on the flop I would rather skip the value on the river cause they could also have better flushes. ;)

      Best Regards.
