      What do you think about my play here? Would you play different on blank river (let's say 3)?

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Preflop: Fold such hands from UTG, they are very marginal to play while can't hit much, our ace is almost always dominated and nor we can't even hit straight. For example which we could do with a hand like A4/A5s.

      As played
      Postflop: Exactly into that spot you put yourself when isolating such hands. But we can't really play much differently while we need to protect our hand from draws. Even on a blank river we most likely would have to Check/Fold it.

      Best Regards.
