      Given his river sizing I'd say his range is more likely polarized bluffs/FH and 9x, the only hand that he bets for value and you beat is QQ, but maybe he bets that a little smaller. I'd call too given his aggressive postflop play, but I can't say I'd be very happy.

      Regarding 3b pre, I may also play it like that since he folds a lot to 3b. I'd go for the call especially if there are some squeeze happy guys behind you. I'd 3b if I had done that a lot during recent history. If he's aware you only 3b very few hands against UTG and you haven't been out of line recently, maybe just calling can be better.

      Preflop depends on your overall gameplan. If you dont have a bluff 3bet range vs UTG, then it doesnt make much sense to 3bet only KK+.

      Postflop, I dont see how you could fold this.

      Hey guys,

      I think preflop is fine. I mean, if your plan against the more standard/reggy UTG openers is to not have a 3bet range, then this is perfectly fine.

      Postflop, your hand is very under-repped imo. I think you have a call. Sometimes you face a bluff like busted spades, QTs, KQ and you also beat part of his value range like AJ, QQ.

      Yup, I agree with manu, 3b'ing PF depends on your gameplan. If he's a fish/you have no history or he has a tendency to call ofc mandatory 3b! But if your overall gameplan does not include a vs UTG 3b range (like mine) then calling is fine.

      As played I don't think the river is even that close just call.
