      Hi,


      I assume you were planning to c/r the flop which is fine, you can also lead out yourself.

      The turn raise is dicey since CO is short, getting 3bet by him would suck in this spot. And the action started when the K appeared, if somebody has Kx they're not folding. Since it's also a pot building move it's likely okay for it lets you fire a bigger bet when you hit on the river, but i think you can try and play your top pair passively once you hit it too. It has the advantage of keeping dominated flushdraws in the pot too.

      I'm not sure i'd bet the river as played, for UTG2 to call that bet he would have to have a K himself unless he's loose enough to call Tx there and our kicker isn't that great. If i had any reason to believe UTG2 could bluff some missed draw there i'd c/c, but without reads i guess blockbet/folding is fine too.


      Hope it helps.

      On flop I planned to play passively, because board is paired and I dont want to draw to second nuts (high flush here). My hand grow stronger on turn, so here I thought to be good spot to become aggressive. I usually dont do this play with marginal hands.
      Later thought that paired board was bad spot to do so, cause if I got 3bet, I am drawing dead.
