      Hey Dublinmatt,

      Hand is a little weak to be calling preflop. I recommend you fold this vs a UTG open generally speaking.

      After UTG doesn't cbet he is often check/folding a lot. Even if he doesn't check/fold you have a ton of equity, so betting flop around $0.11 is good.

      Turn raise is fine with the nuts. You can probably raise larger for value.

      When the 4-to-straight gets there on river you want to keep your sizing on the small side to encourage calls from 2-pair. Perhaps half pot or so.
