      Hey maheepsangari,

      Preflop, I like your flat call.

      On the flop UTG bets big into 4 people. He either has a strong draw like QTs, FD or strong made hand lik KK,JJ,33, AK/KQ,

      By the turn when a ton of his draws get there you are in pretty bad shape against his range imo. Very often he will have set/flush/straight. If you raise here it's a bluff. I'd probably fold. Absolute strength of your hand does not really matter in this spot, you don't do well vs his range. Even if you call, you will likely face large river bet.

      I think call is fine and fold looks little weak. You can re-evaluate on river.
