      What exactly do you want to know? I would also dont mind getting it in preflop with your stack size, but you played it very well, only got unlucky. Nice hand! umbup:

        Not sure what you want to know other than opinions on the hand
        1) preflop raise was too much, 2.5x here max. I typically go 3x until i hit 25/50, then 2.5x until antes then 2.1x
        2) I would not have flatted the 3bet, would have got 4-bet it back and got it all in on the preflop
        3) The weird bet on the flop is strange. He appears not to want to play for a big pot, you seemed happy to call, I assume on the same idea.
        4) When the turn came, you decided to play back at him and that is cool, no reason to play for a small pot anymore, just unlucky with the river

        So the take-aways for this I would say are
        1) Don't make the preflop too big, you WANT people to call you and x3 from UTG is more likely to get folds than a call, you got lucky here that your opponent wanted to play
        2) Have a plan for the flop, don't just flat the 3-bet and figure it out when you get to the flop. I personally only like a flat here on the preflop if you were going to re-raise/jam any flop action.. regardless of cards.
        3) Have a plan for your raise - did you plan to flat if you got re-raised? did you know what you would do?
