      UTG2 stats 24/13 AF:2,4 River AF:6 fold to flop cbet:53 WTSD:20 W$SD:60 after 286 hands.

      BU is 11/9 nit.

      Pre flop: standart iso.

      Flop: I think I have to cbet here, BU will fold a lot of hands here and UTG2 will have a lot of FD's, low pp's, so we can barrel on non diamond Q, K, A, 4 turn if he calls.

      Turn: bad card for us.

      River: decided to bluff catch vs missed FD's.

      What do you think?

      Preflop: Weird that you raise 3bb in the other hand but 4bb here. UTG2 has around 35bb so I think making a smaller 3-3.5bb isoraise is probably better.

      Flop: betting can't be too bad, though I prefer betting with a backdoor FD to go along with the hand but here betting is fine too

      Turn: Give up now, it improves A2 and 67. Honestly I'm not too sure how often he has those but now you beat fewer air combos

      River: Now you are only beating busted draws. I prefer having busted straight draws to be present too.
