      Hi,

      Preflop: checking is perfectly fine given our hand.

      Postflop: My rule of thumb is to never go broke in a limped pot without reads or a really strong hand.

      However, since this guy limped UTG and made a huge raise on the flop it's possible that he was slowplaying a hand like AA or AK (and looking to limp/reraise). I think that while K9 is possible he doesn't seem to play that many hands so I would discount better pairs. I also think that sets would not raise this big.

      So given all of the above I would go with the hand by making a small 3-bet.

      No, I'm going with the hand here given the UTG + big raise assumption.
