      Hi Breezand,

      Preflop: looks fine given UTG is really wide. Since we are IP we can also consider a 3-bet.

      Postflop: I think that we should raise the flop for value and protection especially given the small raise.

      I don't see why you wait until the river to get the money in where all draws are now folding. Raise flop, bet turn, try to get the money in while many more worse hands can stack off.

      And on the river why not shove directly if you are raising? Why leave him 11 BB?
