      No point in making a conti bet here - too many hands will call you - many high hearts + hands like j10 aj kj kq 89 and many many many of villain's calling ranges.

      as for the turn - that's a bit tough - heads up I'd almost always go broke here - but we have no idea with what BB minbets with.
      They are not that likely to have the flush and your hand is reasonable here. The question is whether to protect it from a 4th heart.
      I think that I'd call the turn and if no heart comes, I call another bet oon the river and if checked to me - then I bet to get value from hands like aq/kq/sets/lowerstraigh/two pair and any of this kind.

      Another option is to raise the turn but this way we may not get value from weaker hands because villains will be very cautious. And we will have a very tough decision if facing a shove. I guess the first option is better for these 2 reasons :)

      I´d just call UTg raise. Fullring players play tighter and I hate gtiing stacked here. Plus you keep pot small, so when another heart comes you ahve an easy fold.

      Thanks, just a couple of quick follow ups:

      1) If BB reraises on the turn, how would you proceed? and
      2) Do you call if UTG or BB bet pot on a blank river?

      My opinion:
      1) probably fold - BB shows too much strength
      2) I'd insta call anything that's less than 2/3 of the pot. Probably call a pot bet, too.
