86s UTG is a tad loose. I would open suited connecting cards as low as 65s+ but not low suited one-gappers. As played I would fold to the 3-bet pre. It looks to me that you like to make high risk plays. I think that this will hurt you in the long run. Are you currently winning at 5NL?

Hi NaturoSasuki,

I agree with folding preflop. As played, I would prefer betting this flop rather then x/c-ing. We have a weak pair and vulnerable to over cards. I want to cbet this flop to deny worse hands to bluff me because it will be hard for us to continue with a weak one pair hand. If they do not fold the flop we can barrel some turns to get folds from PPs below TP, like JJ/TT/99 or some floats. We can bet diamonds, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. Our river bet does not make too much sense when we bluff we hope for better hands to fold and it would be optimistic to expect AQ to fold to our river bet. What they fold will be their air hands. I think this line will 1. not happen that often, and 2. when it does will not make us money
