      UTG shows T:diamond: T:club: (Full House, Tens full of Eights) (Pre 54%, Flop 74%, Turn 68%)

      UTG wins 195.5 BB
      Hero wins 0 BB

      I float flop because he gives up on turn when not hitting. (cbet flop 76%, cbet turn 26%).

      Turn I take a free card, and plan to bluff 1/2 pot on river if I miss, because he should give up anyway with non Ax. I go all in and hope it looks like a bluff to him (busted fd)
      and maybe he calls with 8x, or strong Ax,

      Flop: What's his opening range? I would fold here immediately. I think his range in UTG is highly weighted towards AX. While i may opt to float in other situations with backdoor draws, his bet size is pretty big so i fold immediately.

      Turn: see no reason not to bet here immediately unless you were afraid of a c/r which would be the main reason not to bet here. By betting turn you give yourself more leverage and you can bluff flush rivers.
