      Hero wins $0.00
      UTG wins $3.77

      Should I ever check behind here? I just realised he almost always doesn't have a flush draw (maybe backdoor at the most) here and a Q will only help me. After betting the flop perhaps it's my mistake to shove perhaps should have folded because AJ, AT, JJ and TT are likely to be in his 3bet calling range. I have a gutshot though so is a shove standard here?

      Hello,

      Preflop 3betting is good.

      I prefer bet/folding the flop here.
      I don't think that a worse hand would raise here and if we stack off we are in a bad shape most of the time.

      Best,
      Plamen
