      I take advantage of my tight image to make an unusual (and maybe unnecessary) play. I get a call from the button which might be pretty loose. On the later streets I try to build the pot and also protect against another :club:

      I think 87s is a little bit too loose to open from UTG.

      I prefer cbetting the flop here myself. Check/raising looks way too strong and he could be inclined to fold a lot of his range.

      As played on the flop, turn and river are good.

      I also like to mix in hands like 87s once in a while, but you should do it in later positions. Because when you get called your gonna play the worst hand OOP.
