      Hello tadejusce,

      Not much you could have done there, our idea to bet the turn is for protection & free showdown.

      Best Regards.

      I would fold prefolp from UTG. We are going to be OOP and dominated mostly.
      What do you think?

      EDIT:
      Check your HEM filters, when you open KQo, KJ, QJ, KT etc. These hands just suck.
      I'd rather add Axs or SC if I wanted to play more hands from UTG.

      Depends a lot on your postflop skills. The hand is still possible to play profitable but one of the hands you should definitely take an eye. Towards to AT/AJ and etc. :) Rather take AT/AJ first then KJ, step by step.
