      Prima, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      MP: $49.50 (99 bb)
      CO: $61.24 (122.5 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $66.31 (132.6 bb)
      SB: $100.14 (200.3 bb)
      BB: $78.13 (156.3 bb)
      UTG: $50 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with J A
      UTG raises to $1.50, MP calls $1.50, CO folds, Hero raises to $6, 2 folds, UTG calls $4.50, MP folds

      Flop: ($14.25) 7 3 6 (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $6.50, UTG calls $6.50

      Turn: ($27.25) A (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      River: ($27.25) 7 (2 players)
      UTG bets $18.25, Hero calls $18.25

      Anon table.

      UTG played 27/25 after 40 hands. MP is unknown, seemed TAGgish on a few hands sample.

      On the flop my plan was to barrel at least twice to make him fold PPs. Better to just give up?
      On the turn I dont think I have a valuebet.
      River? Did he float with AQ/AK(?) on the flop? 7x is not very likely, so he is turning something into bluff, or has the nuts with 33/66/77/AA.

      Hey pcfmcc02,

      Pre flop I think is really good, vs a 27/22 he is likely to be opening too wide vs UTG and even if he thinks you are trying to level him with some spazzy 3bet, he will often jsut sigh fold because of the positions and a guy to act after him.

      Not only do we win the pot vs his trashy hands that raised UTG but we also allow ourselves to win the pot vs pairs and AQ that either dominate us or would share equity going to the flop.

      More than often the guy in the middle is going to be squeezed out of the pot as he will have a weakish range.

      As played a double barrel strategy here is indeed optimal, but on this turn we can perhaps check back. When we do check back we can of course not folding to any river bet.

      I would snap the river now

      He can maybe turning 88+ into a bluff thinking we have QQ/KK and is trying some desperation bluff.
