      Hey Dracsharp,

      Preflop: UTG is a big fish and we are 150 deep so we should 3-bet/squeeze even larger than 4x here

      Postflop: Since we got called in two spots and both have position I don't mind check folding. The flop does hit our perceived range but these guys (esp UTG) will have plenty of broadways.

      As played I think we can ck/call the river or bet small. I'd expect UTG to bet some Kx hands on the flop (he bets often) so he is on some missed draw often there.

      Yes but i choose the turn because apart from the pp-s that might pay 1 card fds could pay as well, wouldn't you go for it ? Or is it a good move ? You didn't even mention it.

      Not sure if we have enough info to cc bluffcatch him on the river but i can't see any value in betting there.

      I didn't mention because I thought it was implied in my statement about the river :)

      My apologies.

      Your turn play is fine because I'd expect almost all better hands to bet the flop with the exception with a few rare Kx. The BTN guy never has anything or he wouldn't check that flop so we are really valuebetting versus the fish.

      Unless you expect the fish to check a ton of Kx on the flop or just call flushes on the turn I don't see why we can't bluff catch for 25% pot odds. His range should have plenty of hearts that call the turn and can bluff river.
