      Playing the way I did on such a wet board seems to be pretty stupid. Basically, the 3-bet on the flop was for pure information. A had a few reasons to believe UTG was just trying to steal there.

      Hi Stevie8,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: It's a wet board with a lot of people in the pot. I'd just bet larger here (pot it). As played why are you 3-betting so small and then checking a blank on the turn?

      You allow all the draws to see a free card and lose value from pairs.

      Shove the turn.

      Raising for information is never a valid reason. Usually information is gained as a byproduct. You literally min raise there so what info does it give you? Villain can interpret that as weak and bluff you for example.

      As a side note, when you leave a reply don't forget to hit the advise judge to take another look button.
