      not exactly sure how else to play this hand. opening UTG i have a strong range, but vs someone who minraises me i doubt i have to consider my perceived range much. i can't just fold and there is lots of dead money in the pot so is this played okay? and the flop comes out so dry im sure i can just check once and try to induce something.. the money is no doubt going in at some point with the size of the pot.

      I like your preflop play here.
      I'd definitely 4bet here against a minbet and three calls.

      I don't mind checking the flop here and letting them bluff since we can easily put the money in on the later streets.

      Nice hand!
