      It was clear value bet on the river for me from AJ,AQ. If I would thin vbet like 2$ it's probably call isn't it? VS normal size bet and raise I think it's thight fold what do you think about it?

      Preflop: Don't mind the call here. If we had more reads on how loose UTG was opening, maybe a 3bet would have been better.

      Flop: My default play is to call down on almost any runout. If you think villain may pay you off light, then raising the Flop and playing for stacks may become a better option.

      River: Pretty sick spot. I agree with betting here for sure. Does he rep a busted flush draw? What about AA or AT?

      I think it's fine to fold here at microstakes cos I don't think people take this line enough of the time as a bluff, but if you had more reads about him being spazzy or aggro then it may be closer to a call. Another bad thing here is that you have Kc, which blocks off combos of busted flush draws that he could have played in this way.
