      UTG 20/16/4.0/0.0/18/111
      FT3b 100% (6)
      RFI from UTG 27(15)

      SB unknown

      RFI probably doesn't come into play due to sample, but since he folds so much I thought it was ok?

      Ever consider calling turn/get it in river? I don't know if he raises turn with QJ JJ QQ. He seems kinda fishy, so I expect him to c/c turn, donk river a lot with nutted hands.

      I expected to see Jx & flushes so I was surprised when he folded.

      FWIW I think my flop/turn sizing could be bigger.

      Hero (BTN): $86.57 (173.1 bb)
      SB: $169.24 (338.5 bb)
      BB: $22.42 (44.8 bb)
      UTG: $51.35 (102.7 bb)
      MP: $24.25 (48.5 bb)
      CO: $51.63 (103.3 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A 7
      UTG raises to $1.50, 2 folds, Hero raises to $4.50, SB calls $4.25, 2 folds

      Flop: ($11) J J Q (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $6, SB calls $6

      Turn: ($23) 4 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $14.50, SB raises to $29, Hero raises to $76.07 and is all-in, SB folds

      $81 pot ($2.50 rake)
      Final Board: J J Q 4
      Hero mucked A 7 and won $78.50 ($39 net)
      SB mucked and lost (-$39.50 net)

      Hey Danny,

      Wrote an answer and didn't get sent. :facepalm:

      What I said is that preflop, given 170bb stacks it's fine to 3bet even not having a big sample on UTG RFI. His range for calling preflop is going to expand usually and he will play to hit too much => dead money.

      Postflop, you can make it slightly bigger but not much. 1-2bb would do the job. On the turn I prefer calling. His range will not contain Jx this deep when the flush hits imo so it's maybe flushes (hard when you have the nut flush against UTG open/call) so he is mostly airballing or turning a hand like AxKd into a bluff. Call and play river IP.
