      Reads are handy here.

      If UTG is loose PF then there are plenty of pair+str8_draws, OC's+str8_draws etc. in his range that might not pay-off on a blank river so I'd bet. Against a tighter player I'd c/c turn and possibly c/f river.

      Against all opponents I'd lead out for a psb on the flop.

      What scares me here is 3rd heart...UTG just called you raise on flop so he didn't have made hand with st8 or trips (in this case he would probably reraise you bcs of drawy board...)
      On turn I would bet 2/3 pot to se where I stand...

      The turn card sucks. I bet/fold and if he calls, i take the free SD without an 8 or 9.
