      Pre: I'd prefer to flat, vs utg range we are usually behind, and we still have position against him.

      Cbet that flop? It's likely that your opponent doesn't have any made hand there, and K fits your range well, too. If you check flop, you should definitely bet that turn.

      Hello bezzeb,

      If you are 3betting those hands preflop then why ain't ya CBetting such flops? You have to CB, what are you hoping to hit? You wont play profitable this way, which means rather call preflop.

      Though as played you don't have the implied odds on the turn to call and should rather fold it.

      Best Regards.

      3-bet vs open raising unk from UTG is a little bit too loose even on SH. As played u should cbet flop.
