      UTG 21/11/160hands
      13% open UTG so hes not super nitty (maybe a sample issue)
      63%FTcbet, 13%raise cbet
      Agg% by street 52/67/50

      Not sure if I should just bet twice in position & decide river, or if checking back with BD equity is ok?

      Flop seems to hit him fairly well & he can c/raise a decent amount of hands so I decided to pot control & bet turn/river.

      Thought if I am calling turn I have to call river since all FDs missed.
      If he was more passive I think I just cbet & go from there.

      BB: $25.99 (104 bb)
      UTG: $33.46 (133.8 bb)
      MP: $29.43 (117.7 bb)
      Hero (CO): $29.49 (118 bb)
      BTN: $32.21 (128.8 bb)
      SB: $40.65 (162.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q A
      UTG raises to $0.75, MP folds, Hero raises to $2.25, 3 folds, UTG calls $1.50

      Flop: ($4.85) Q 3 J (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($4.85) J (2 players)
      UTG bets $3, Hero calls $3

      River: ($10.85) 2 (2 players)
      UTG bets $6.50, Hero calls $6.50

      $23.85 pot ($1.19 rake)
      Final Board: Q 3 J J 2
      UTG showed K Q and lost (-$11.75 net)
      Hero showed Q A and won $22.66 ($10.91 net)

      I think it's better to have a polarized 3betting range here and not merge like you did especially vs regs.

      Postflop: I think after you 3bet, I think TPTK here is a bet at least flop and turn for value and evaluate river. Also it's not the end of the world if he c/r, obv we can call ip and make good decisions hopefully.
