      I think you should bet more on turn, $3 to $4, and push river.

      Also, UTG2 seems quite aggressive post flop with 6.2 AF, which makes me wonder if checking turn and letting him bet wouldn't be better.

      Good point. I must start looking at AF - I always forget. Check raise looks like a promising alternative here (though I try to remember other voices telling me to bet for value and build the pot...)

      Hey Tim64,

      I like to lead out on the flop. If you check/raised you would probably scare away most of the worse hands that might pay you off and c/c is not an option, because your hand is too vulnerable.

      As played, flop is fine, but on the turn I'm betting 2/3 potsize(4$) and of course pushing river.
