PFR flats my cold 4bet

      UTG is 21/17/6, fold to 3bet 63%. Only 200 hands so other stats don't seem that relevant.

      What do you think UTG's preflop range is here? BU is 27/22/10, 15% 3bet range from BU, 3bets 7% vs UTG. UTG opens 13% from that position.

      I have 3.5% 4bet range overall (25/20/8) and I could possibly be viewed as cold 4betting BU light (which I certainly would do that a lot). At the same time, UTG doesn't necessarily feel like he is going to flat the 4bet too often with a weak hand like JJ since he's essentially a tighter player who wouldn't want to get himself into marginal spots.

      BTN: $216.57
      SB: $200.00
      Hero (BB): $364.90
      UTG: $232.18
      MP: $89.79
      CO: $232.20

      Pre Flop: ($3.00) Hero is BB with A:club: Q:club:
      UTG raises to $6, 2 folds, BTN raises to $18, 1 fold, Hero raises to $40.40, UTG calls $34.40, 1 fold

      I'm mostly putting him on QQ and KK, maybe AKs. I think AA ships to try coolering my QQ/KK/AK, JJ should be folded IMO, and I think he shouldn't call too often with a hand like AKo.

      Flop: ($99.80) T:spade: 2:club: K:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $50.00, UTG calls $50

      On the Flop I decided to halfpot instead of bet smaller because I want to force him to define his hand clearly. I usually bet 40% in 4bet pots on 2 broadway textures though. Not sure if that is the preferable line.

      I'm not even sure if I should be cbetting against such a strong range but went for it anyway since I do have equity in the hand. I'm guessing that I should c/f a hand like Ad3d? Or is it better to cbet A3 since I no longer have the Queen blocker which allows me to have more fold equity?

      Turn: ($199.80) 7:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $274.50, UTG calls $141.78 all in

      On the Turn, I'm like "mehhh", i think it's pretty obvious he has a King here. Should I just check and call any bet which gives me 22%? I would check/fold all rivers not giving me a straight or a flush, including the Ace since KK and AK beat me anyway.

      River: ($483.36) 2:diamond: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      Thoughts on this hand?

      think if you want to cbet with lots of hands (probably) you should go with a bit smaller sizing here

      I think it's fine, like twoshae said it might be prefered to bet slightly less on the flop, but it's no biggie. Turn is for sure a shove, if you check you still gotta call a shove from Kx etc, and shipping might give you a little bit of fold-equity vs hands such as QQ.
