      I'd raise flop for value and protection. C/c turn and c/c river.

      I'd prefer to call 3bet preflop instead 4betting myself.

      Just lol @ 90% cbet, you can raise him with your whole range and still be profitable on the long run.

      Hello daisuke3823,

      Preflop: I am even folding this here since the opponent seems to be rather tighter one and as well he is doing that vs UTG range. Often times it's somewhat strong hand. The problem with Calling is that we just don't hit often enough to satisfy the Call. We have to keep in mind that if we don't hit we have to overplay him and make him fold postflop. Can we do that?

      As played
      Postflop: I guess I am rather Check/Calling as well for the reason if we Check/Raise there aren't just many hands which pay us anyways. JJ/KK will likely just give it up, while they might try still to bluff.

      Best regards.
