      I think preflop is fine but im concerned abt the 5bb open raise size. That looks rly strong.

      Flop is close. I think the cbet is fine with the backdoor flushdraw but without it i would checkfold. I would imagine that utg's range is highly weighted towards QX and pocketpairs and i dont think u have much fold equity here so u need to barrel all club turns.

      I think you can also halfpot the flop. The 2/3 size is a little too large. River is tough to play too without having defined his range. I guess u can halfpot here and hope to get calls from AQ. I dont think he has sets or kq too often. You also have A so there are fewer busted flushdraws to bluffcatch against since villain cannot have hands like A:cJ or A:cQ
