      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is MP with 3 :diamond: 3 :heart:
      UTG raises to $0.20, Hero calls $0.20, 4 folds

      Flop: ($0.55) Q :diamond: 3 :spade: A :spade: (2 players)
      UTG bets $0.27, Hero raises to $1.10, UTG calls $0.83

      Turn: ($2.75) 3 :club: (2 players)
      UTG bets $1.37, Hero ???

      I feel UTG's range is really narrow here, QQ, AA, KQ with FD, AQ, maybe AK and some weaker Ax. Most of these hands will barrel river and some will call my shove anyway. But hands like AK, AJ for example might fold if I raise turn? Is calling here better? Or raise to set up a river shove?

      Hi.

      I think you should just call and reship over the river especially when you already have the nuts. Raising is better if u are very sure that he has strong hands here on the Turn and will never fold vs a raise. I dont think thats necessarily the case here so i prefer slowplaying.

      Thanks.

      You can afford slowplaying here, his range seems very strong here. Ofc, A spade might slow him down if he has e.g AQ..
