      Hello. My first hand in evaluation forum at nl25 :]

      Preflop: utg is unk, prob reg. Mp and Bb are huge fishes. Need to adjust to this sizings at this limit. Usually when sqz I use 3x +1x per caller. If utg 4bets I would give him a credit and fold. When mp calls he has very wide range. Don't think he's slowplaying here ever QQ+/AK. He's been in position isolating bb villain a lot in previous hands.

      Flop: with 1 OC + NFD + BDFD and a dry board I think this is a must cbet. Now I'd bet 1/3 of the pot. His call include lots of PP, Kx hands, floats like Ax (even maybe hands like A2-A5, FD.

      Turn: vs fish I don't like betting here. I will get called to much and if he calls I don't like to 3-barrel vs fish in generall.

      River: when he checks he prob doesn't have Kx as he would bet now. I beat some FD and some random floats (which he prob bluffs on the river). I think PP are in his range most of the time which are not folding now.

      I would double barrel non pairing turns but this turn sucks. I doubt he ever folds a hand like 88 here when the turn reduces the likelihood of you having KX and increases the likelihood of you being on a draw.

      No point in betting river - hope he has a busted draw. When you check the Turn I think your river FE vs stronger hands is extremely low now.

      Hi dalmar!

      I like your squeeze to isolate the fish and bluff out the UTG. Your hand is a bluff vs UTG and a value hand vs MP.

      I agree with your analysis. If you bet the turn you have to barrel the river as well which is never good vs a fish/recreational player.

      One thing only - your flop cbet could be bigger as fishes do react to bet sizes (from my personal experience). Making it less than 1/2 pot makes fish angry and they start calling lighter. However, I'm not sure if betting more in this spot would get your more folds. Maybe if you bet 3/4 of the pot it could make small PPs fold on the flop. Regardless, I think you played the hand fine.
