      Villain is playing a mixture of LAG/TAG but his UTG opening range is pretty tight and this is the first time I've seen a raise from this position, so I'm assuming AT+ TT+.

      Usually this is a hand I would 3-bet but I wasn't too confident in doing so, so I opted to play it more deceptively. I think it was clear he had Ax so I was looking to squeeze out a bit more value on the river, but I think I could have made it slightly bigger.

      Well if you think he's pretty tight at UTG I don' mind calling.

      As played preflop, check/calling the flop is fine.

      On the turn I think check/calling is good as well.

      So, if you don't think he's folding Ax here I'd bet like $2.7 here.
      I don't really mind betting here if you think he's going to check back AJ/AT but call with those.
