      feel like i messed this hand up. i didn't wanna 4bet UTG's limp/raise so just called really. i expect something like QQ+ and AK. he's fishy. postflop i have to bet for value. and the turn is a blank so i have to bet again but now i'm pretty much committed. i also realised at this point that BB has been very quiet just calling my big bets. on the river i tilt called.... but i don't really think i can fold at this point anyway

      looks perfectly fine to me.

      i think UTG could limp/raise worse hands like QJ QK AJ etc. and then he plays the draws passively and on the river when busted decides to shove as a bluff.

      of course sometimes he could have slowplayed nuts like AA KK TT 33 but i think thats rare enough for a call to be profitable.
