      Hi,

      Since UTG shows so much strength on the flop your one option would be fold on the flop, since likely you´re against a lot of times against set, but if you have seen him also raising with worse hands I think shoving flop is also fine.
      He sometimes has there overpair and co range is likely too wide to give him always better hand than aces.

      Also if you call you´re kind of pot committed anyway on blank turn.
      3h is one of the best hand to you, so I like b/c turn for value.

      Ok thanks, wondering why CO called with 86o after a UTG raise and UTG+1 call.
