      BTN: 83.12 BB
      SB: 52.04 BB
      BB: 154.36 BB
      UTG: 251.8 BB
      Hero (MP): 204.24 BB
      CO: 58.48 BB

      SB posts SB 0.4 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has A:heart: 3:heart:

      UTG raises to 2 BB, Hero raises to 7 BB, fold, BTN calls 7 BB, fold, fold, UTG calls 5 BB

      Flop: (22.4 BB, 3 players) A:club: 6:spade: 4:club:
      UTG checks, Hero bets 12 BB, BTN calls 12 BB, fold

      Turn: (46.4 BB, 2 players) 9:spade:
      Hero checks, BTN bets 33.04 BB, fold

      BTN wins 44.08 BB

      UTG VPiP 14, call 3bet 60, 200 hands. fold to cbet flop 50%
      BTN 940 hands, VPIP 18, PFR 11, 4bet 6, cold call 3bet 23% (5/22) fold cbet 29, call 43, raise 29.

      Probably not good preflop.

      Flop: Tough spot. Check fold? I think check calling is bad, couse some of them might be bluffing and I cant call more than one street.
      Is cbet ok, and give up turn? Maybe is BTN calling flop with QQ, KK, but I dont think he bets so large turn. He calls quite big 3bet cold, so maybe he does it with small PP, and wanted to bluff me off.

      My notes tell that he called 3bet IP AJo, OOP JTs, AKo. 4bet with KK, AKo.
      So he had Ax in calling range, and I think it is clear fold.

      Pre is OK vs UTG this deep imo.

      Post is bad on flop IMO. Your Ax is so weak you can't get value from the fish's range. He has sa lot of better Ax, like you also noticed. It's just a give up on the flop or maybe call once. You shouldn't forget about UTG being in the pot, he still has a few good Axs in his range as well as all pairs. I don't mind check/calling once vs BU tbh because he can stab all his junk IP vs 2 checks. If you think he barrels with a good range though, just give up flop. I don't see you having enough FE vs 2 to bet here.
