      Xe raises a lot on flops despite being nitty/passive (20 OOP, 40 IP), so I decided to call (they like to bluff no-faces boards), keep xyr range as wide as possible and see what happens next streets.

      Another call on turn due to size and because I feel like KK is good enough for that.

      On river the shove where even an A high that decided to bluff got there, made me fold pretty easily.

      I think most often you should consider folding flop. These regulars are usually quite honest when facing UTG. As played with calling flop, I strongly lean towards calling down. A highs are not that significant in his range vs UTG. It's probably AJs, AQ, AK. Those are 21 total combos but he won't c/r all of them on the flop. I lean towards only A highs with backdoor would raise. Furthermore, what most people do when hitting an ace here is check because they were bluffing and now, hey, look, they don't need to bluff anymore (that's how their usual thought process is like).
