      UTG2 stats 14/9 AF:1,3 WTSD:24 W$SD:69 after 1,2k hands.

      UTG1 is 16/10 reg.

      BB is a fish.

      Pre flop: standart.

      Flop: I was thinking about donking, but decided to check and see what my opponents will do. When BB donk so small and other players just call, I think I have the best hand, so raised for value and protection.

      Turn: I think UTG2 almost always has a FD here, so decided to bet and call his shove.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Hey TheWinnerTakesItAll,

      Flop decision is reasonable, I think you should definitely play raise/fold though. Most players are only ever 3betting a 4x here, and there is decent possibility someone holds a 4x w hen the flop was multiway.

      I think your sizing is also a little large. Even if you raise to $2 or so you rep a 4x really hard and are going to have a lot of protection. You encourage flush-draws to call with a better price and lose less vs a 4x.

      Turn bet is ok vs a flat. Again you should probably play bet/fold rather than bet/call. Also I think a smaller sizing (< 1/2 pot) is better here and encourages flush-draws to call. One card to come on a paired board is typically a spot where flush-draws are not that happy and need a little extra incentive to call.
