      UTG ($4.43) 111bb
      UTG+1 ($1.60) 40bb
      HERO (CO) ($4) 100bb
      BTN ($6.62) 166bb
      SB ($4.47) 112bb
      BB ($2.84) 71bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.06, 6 players) HERO is CO K:heart: A:diamond:
      UTG calls $0.04, 1 fold, HERO raises to $0.20, BTN calls $0.20, 1 fold, BB calls $0.16, UTG raises to $0.40, HERO calls $0.20, BTN folds, BB folds

      Flop: 10:heart: 2:diamond: 4:spade: ($1.22, 2 players)
      UTG checks, HERO checks

      Turn: A:club: ($1.22, 2 players)
      UTG checks, HERO bets $0.68, UTG calls $0.68

      River: J:diamond: ($2.58, 2 players)
      UTG bets $1.84, HERO?

      UTG=55/23, 3B:3, 4B:1.8, AF:1.4, 329h
      BU=47/32, BB=55/0

      I decided to flat UTG`s 3bet because of the fishes behind me.

      If this was HU, I would probably 4bet-fold, because villain`s rather passive and I don`t expect him showing with much worse than AK, QQ+

      But he would probably just call with 99-JJ, AQ

      As he`s so passive, I think he would just check down AK, AQ and bet overcards so my plan was to go to showdown.

      What about b/f the flop 1/2? He might call with his whole PRE range. I even might get value from AQ and most likely go to free showdown.

      My bet is too small. I had to bet at least 0.8 to set up my stack for a river shove.

      I don`t think he ever donks with AQ. Most likely he`s got JJ, maybe TT, AJ. I think it`s a fold.

      Preflop I'd play for stacks here and I'd do it with QQ+, AK.

      On the flop I don't see any point in betting. We have decent showdown value with A high here, also don't really want to get check/raised.

      On the turn I'd bet around $0.8.

      On the river his line looks so weird, but I'd definitely don't fold here.
      Call and make a note.
