      I didnt feel comfortable to 3bet UTG in a hand like this, even despite I had a premium hand. Decided to call and see the flop. On flop, I decided to check since I was ready to check-call or check-raise UTG, but I really wanted to see what was MP going to (a possible set miner). When MP folded, I decided to call UTG's cbet and re-evaluate the hand on turn. The turn was a safe card and I decided to check-raise UTG, since I was sure I was ahead now (was losing only to two hands from his UTG PRF range). When he checked, I got insured that he gave up, and I donked on a perfect paired river for value. As played or...?

      Hello faronel,

      Your play seems to be totally fine and I wouldn't change much in it. 3betting is anyways pretty close while the UTG PFR is even very small one which indicates that he usually will have a very strong range. Nice hand!

      Best regards.
