      Hi Gregor,

      Considering that villain is mostly unknown why are we just calling preflop? It's true that he 3-bets BB vs UTG but he can still have his "standard" range of QQ+, AK plus the bluffs.

      As played on the flop we can considering the raise although there isn't much worse that can go with us. Maybe JJh (if he 3-bets JJ), AhK, AhJ, AhT, AhQ. So calling is fine.

      Turn also looks fine because he can be trying a bluff on the 4th heart but I wouldn't expect villain to try to bluff the river. After all, once we call flop and turn we are most likely holding some sort of a heart in our hand so I can't imagine villain trying to bluff us often.

      On top of that I can't see him valuebetting worse, maybe JJh but I doubt that he would ship the river for 3/4 pot with Jh.

      So as played I'd actually fold the river (with no info) because as mentioned above I can see villain 3-barrel bluffing us here.

      Pre broke. 124bb is not so deep, and we dont have a big sample on him. So just 4bet, and get it in.
