      Preflop: UTG is a bit short but doesn't seem to be fishy. If he is loose versus 3-bets we can 3-bet/go with the hand especially because he only min raised. If not calling is fine.

      Flop: I like the call as he can bluff/bet worse on this board.

      Turn: Is there value in us betting? He may call a weaker Qx, TT, JJ so a thin valuebet is fine. I would make it 1/2 pot though.

      River: All the hands we were trying to get value from got there so we can't do much but fold.

      Preflop calling is ok.

      On the flop is close but since there is a player behind us I'd probably fold. He would rarely bluff being 3way on this board.

      I prefer checking back the turn and reevaluating the river. We have SD value and don't really want to be check/raised.

      As played on the turn, folding river is fine.
