      Hi,

      Well first of all why do you lead out on the Flop? Doesn't look very very captain obvious what you have? For me it does since you are not doing this with a random bluffy hand like 99

      So I just aim for the check/raise most of the time on this flop for value agianst KT-KQ & flushdraws+Overcard

      I wouldn't 3bet QQ preflop because UTG's range is 6% and your QQ is in the middle of his range distribution

      Hello,

      well, I lead out the Flop because I am not sure the UTG will cbet in this multi ways pot and I don't want to give them the chance to see the Turn cheaply if the Flop check around.

      Besides, let say, I check Flop, what do you will do if UTG cbet?

      I think UTG cbeting range is

      Board: K:spade: 4:spade: 7:club:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG     60.94%  38.39%  22.55% { KK+, AKs, AsQs, AsJs, AsTs, AKo }
      Hero     39.06%  16.50%  22.55% { AhKh }


      thanks.

      We don't lead because this line looks incredibly strong so against the UTG player (if he cBets) I still call 1 street since there is a possilibility he might cbet a Kxx board against 3 + you are ahead on case the TUrn is a non and he doesnt bet ;)
