      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has K:heart: Q:heart:

      UTG raises to $0.30, fold, Hero raises to $1.00, fold, fold, fold, UTG calls $0.70

      Flop: ($2.15, 2 players) J:heart: 4:heart: J:diamond:
      UTG checks, Hero bets $1.20, UTG raises to $2.40, Hero calls $1.20

      River: ($21.45, 2 players) Q:diamond:

      Hero shows K:heart: Q:heart: (Two Pair, Queens and Jacks) (Pre 43%, Flop 23%, Turn 16%)
      UTG shows J:spade: A:heart: (Three of a Kind, Jacks) (Pre 57%, Flop 77%, Turn 84%)
      UTG wins $20.45

      The PF 3bet is for value. Villain is not totally known but he has already called two 3bets OOP. I figure that he will call with worse.

      On the flop his min raise looks like a bluff or Jx. Sometimes it is going to be QQ+ or FD.

      When he checks to me i think that all his value hands and FD would bets except QQ+ or 99. I do not know how many bluffs he has on his range when he checks and if he is going to fold an overpair. With these limited information i re-think about my bet, now. What is your take?

      Hi Deo,

      Preflop: The 3-bet preflop is definitely on the thin side versus a UTG raise. I think we are better off calling IP.

      Postflop: As played I agree with your flop line and on the turn I think it's close to a check back. If he bluffed we can take the pot away from him and we want to avoid the second ck/raise which is likely/possible from a Jx hand.
