      My 2c:

      Pre: Fold. ATs looks pretty but it's not worth opening UTG in a full ring game...I mean a seasoned player may well do OK opening UTG 7 handed but not a beginner. Also open limping is horrible.

      So here: fold pre > bet >>>> limp.

      Flop: I just check here, it's multiway plus you have a hand that has some small showdown value so it would be better not to fold out their bluffs/junk.

      Turn: You picked up some equity with the gut shot, given you bet the flop you may as well bet again. I would also fold to their raise.

      Hello art3h,

      Preflop: Limping here is pretty bad, you wont play the hand profitable and from UTG you should be rather folding as long you are new to poker.

      As played
      Flop: Betting is still fine while Check/Folding might be too weak and we still can protect our hand.
      Turn: Although I don't like betting here anymore cause the J improves a lot of his range and therefore I'd rather Check/Fold it while we can't really Bet for value anymore.

      Best Regards.
