      standart 3bet being OOP vs utg raise?

      I know that this flop hits his range good but it good flop to cbet too.
      on turn I decided to look like I hit flush but I gess not many suited hands are in my cold calling range on river next A so it make less combos of A.

      if I dont 3bet then c/c flop and c/f turn?

      Against an UTG range you are roughly flipping equity wise on the flop. You should only call the cbet if you can play turn/river competently, either through UTG being predictable or you being good. As a beginner, I would recommended fold.

      Preflop: I would lean towards calling.

      Turn: This isn't a good bet. Yeah the flush comes in, but UTG is not folding Ax or JJ-KK with a spade.

      River: Check/fold. Sure, he has less combinations of Ax. But there are also very few worse hands that called the turn.

      Hello,

      Preflop: It's only 5handed, why don't you just 3bet? I'd just 3bet here.

      As played
      As you played for set mining preflop or whatever overpair then I'd played the same way as I'd play my smaller pocket pairs, so likely just Check/Fold. Why you even Check/Calling the flop, just give up right there, also the same for turn. Just wasting money and putting yourself into hard decisions. You also playing against unknown or why did you pick such a line?

      Best regards.
