      Hi.

      Preflop: Why not call? Our hand fares pretty well against a wide UTG opening range. Anyway I think 3betting is fine if he is a fish and we want to isolate him from SB and BB.

      Flop: Assess the strength of your hand. We can probably put in 2 bets. So choose which street you want to check. I am fine with bet Flop or check Flop.

      Turn: Stick with your plan, and call every turn and river. I dont like the river fold.

      Thanks.

      handcount is really low so I didn't draw that many conclusions from it, from standard reg utg open I prefer to 3b A9 instead of flatting.

      on the river I just didn't see enough bluffs/worse showdown hands that he could have here although I felt very weak. Vs check plan would be to bet. What weaker hands do you expect him to bet with on the river?

      Thank you :)

      He may value bet some worse AXs when you check the Flop. Your range looks a lot like KK/QQ here. Besides he could definitely have some bluffs in his range. I don't see why you should completely discount air hands from his range.
