      Hero bets $4, UTG calls $4, UTG+1 folds, would a check-raise have been better against two opponents?

      I would have raised preflop against those 2 .

      Yeah, I also think I played too passively pre-flop. What about the post-flop actions?

      I probably bet there too. You`re not sure he`s c-betting and don`t want to see a Q K or A on turn.

      Thanks, I already feel much better about my decisions :-)

      Let's see if anyone would suggest a different line (e.g. check-raise on flop and/or check/call turn, or whatnot).

      I would be 3betting preflop for sure as well. UTG is almost LAG with those stats, which means any pair, lots of SC hands, Ax hands and broadways, so this is often dead money.

      Given the preflop line, I think he will always bet postflop, so I will go for the check raise on this board. What you do after that depends on your reads of him. An aggressive player might go all in with overcards, but your reads are paramount here, his AF and what you know about him.

      I would likely 3-bet pf
      If you don´t want to go all-in then just c/c flop, turn and river
      If you want to go all-in I find c/r is better option than leading out.
