      I think I played it right.
      Is it standard to play call/call/call here?

      Preflop seems standard.
      I was doubting on the flop if I could raise, but I had position and would probably only isolate myself against AA/KK with a raise.
      The turn is also a call in my opinion.

      Hi Liquid,

      Preflop: What do we know about villain? 3-bet from BB to UTG are rarely bluffs or thin so you can even fold preflop.

      As played we need implied odds to call down like that considering that we most likely only have 9 outs for the flush (18% equity on each street).

      I'm sorry for the lack of information.

      I only had 10 hands on villain, but he had a PFR of 70 on them. That's why I chose not to fold.

      Ok, that's fine.

      Against unknown in these positions (BB vs UTG) we can even fold preflop.

      As played playing the draw passive is fine and we may have some small implied odds.
