      Hey Stevie8,

      Seems ok to just flat call the flop here and make a decision on the turn.

      While you'd very much like to protect your hand it's somewhat unlikely you are going to get called by worse vs an UTG open range.

      When opponent does just smooth-call vs your check/raise it's probably a good idea to keep firing on the turn for thin-value/protection.

      As played I guess the river check/fold is fine although it's not impossible opponent holds some busted-spade by this point and may have 3bet overpairs on the flop. He could also hold a 9, but there are relatively less 9's in a standard UTG+1 opening range.
