      My thoughts:

      Preflop: Opening to 4BB from UTG with 33 is not good. A limp, and call a raise is OK, if the stacks are big enough for it to be profitable. (See the "Call 20" rule).

      Flop: When he raises you, you should re-raise. He could be on a flush draw, but more likely, he has an overpair which he likes. With his small raise I'd just push my stack as a re-raise since you'd be comitted anyways.

      Turn: Why would you fold? The T doesn't change anything, push AI.

      Preflop depends on the table. If it's tight and you don't expect to get 3bet from someone then you can open raise. Fold is good also, it's zoom so you will get better hand soon.

      Flop, as DucksEatFish said is a stack off. You don't want to see a spade or a card that completes straight draw. Stack off will be EV+

      Hello bssjonny94,

      Preflop: Would advice rather fold those hands from UTG, especially in ZOOM poker. They are very tough to play and often times you get called from a lot better hands as many PPs.

      As played
      Postflop: What's the purpose of calling the flop and then folding the river? What made the T change on the turn? You beat the same hands on the flop as on the turn. Therefore instead of Calling the flop 3bet it and get it in.

      Best Regards.
