      NL Holdem $0.20(BB) Replayer
      Hero ($25.48)
      BB ($20)
      UTG ($32.10)
      UTG+1 ($18.46)
      CO ($25.19)
      BTN ($18.60)

      Dealt to Hero A:diamond: 2:diamond:

      UTG calls $0.20, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $1, fold, UTG calls $0.80

      FLOP ($2.20) T:diamond: 2:heart: 5:heart:

      Hero bets $1.50, UTG calls $1.50

      TURN ($5.20) T:diamond: 2:heart: 5:heart: 7:spade:

      Hero checks, UTG bets $2, Hero folds

      UTG wins $4.94

      UTG: 52/25/3, fodl to cbet 43 (7), 86 hands

      UTG notes:
      call in SB vs isolation w KJo, cehck OOP 3way QJx w 2nd pair, check A, check 7
      call vs steal OOP w Q8o, c/c KQQss w trips, check 4, check 7 on 4th card flush

      BB: 21/17/1.3, fold to cbet 10, raise cbet 20 (10), wtsd 33 (46), w$sd 47 (15) 338 hands

      I was thinking about limiping, because it might be hard to make them fold when I am OOP. But on the other hand it might be too weak, and still it is posible that we will be heards up, so with this hand should be fine, UTG stil folds to cbets sometimes.

      Flop cbet as semibluff - pair + BD FD.

      Turn barrel? I cannot hit flush anymore, so only few outs for trips and 2 pair. But he still could call flop with better ace high than my and could fold on the turn. But FDs call, so not many hands are folding I think.

      Hi Speed,

      Can he call we better A high? We have a pair so we beat all A high.

      Since we saw him check down weaker pairs, his turn bet is slightly polarized to TP+ or nothing (maybe draws). I think we could try a small ck/raise to about $6 here or just ck/fold (if we aren't confident in our read).

      If he has a draw we are most likely ahead of it (with our pair) and river may go ck/ck (if we get called we are ck/folding river UI).

      Yeah, my mistake, - my pair is so low and vulnerable that I didn't even call as a pair :D
