      Final Pot: $4.21.


      UTG2 was VPIP/PFR around 70/40. I played a bit looser against him trying to catch him. His post-flop game wasn't too impressive (BTW is there a single good HUD stat for roughly evaluating people's post-flop play or aggression). This is my magnum opus :) Wasn't this draw too risky? (only noticed it on turn actually) Keep in mind I was pretty much focusing just on this guy.

      Hi Trzewia,

      Preflop: Why are we limping with just one limper? He plays loose (per your stats) so you should always isolate here, raise it to 10c-12c. We want to play HU with him and have initiative, plus we don't want a small pot when we hit and we don't want to allow BB to see a cheap flop.

      Postflop: As played I would fold the flop. We only have backdoors and we don't hit often enough. Turn is a fold as well with just a gut shot.

      Once we hit the river shoving is fine, he may call because he wants to split.
