Hello ,

Here is a hand where I felt like I did not know what to do on my turn , I think I may have played it correctly but , again I need a little encouragement .

It was a 9 player 'SitnGo' $1.50 buy-in and I usually find myself jamming with this hand during this format , my strategy is tight aggressive .

no problems with the way you played that one at all. Called the preflop UTG raise, bet 60% of pot when you hit top pair and call someone else's push.

I'm surprised they pushed you with 2nd pair... I would have put them on probably a flush draw or an outside shot at KJ or 33.
