      Hello lukezo,

      Preflop: Against UTG I usually tend not to 3bet unless I know the opponent is rather loose with his open-raise. Rather just Call and play postflop.

      As played
      Postflop: Not much to do when you picked the 3bet for value line, which means you are as well going broke postflop. Although I wouldn't shove directly, I'd bet like $1,70 on turn and ship the river. But of course it's not that big mistake to shove directly but the problem is that you just representing a very strong hand with it rather than something really weak and he will have hard time Calling with very weak pairs or draws.

      Best regards.
