      I don't like calling with suited connectors from early position, I prefer raising from lat position with them, you will also need good post flop skills to play them.

      I might C/R a bit smaller on the flop, on turn I like the size of the bet and of course it's an easy call.
      I hope he didn't have a Ten... :)

      Well, his PFR is low, and he was in early position, so I thought he had a hand he was willing to go broke with. So I thought 3betting was a bad idea, but calling was possible because of big implied odds
      He had QQ :)

      Fair enough, but remember that you will need good postflop skills to play those shiny suited connectors OOP.

      Since there was one cold caller and MP1 is very tight, you might call form SB.

      You hit your flop. c/r is good. I like your bet size. However, if his range was looser, he might not have c-bet. In that case you could make a donkbet for protection and for representing bluff or flush.

      Turn is your jackpot. Generally, you should have bet more (for protection) but right now there is no need to protect. Betting small (little bit over 1/2-pot is good). Thus you are giving you opponent good odds to this a flush.

      Nice hand and well played.
