      Really not sure on this hand.

      Preflop raiser = 58/40 over 50 hands.
      Other villain only 5 hands.

      I didn't want to check this flop as it holds too many draws for a free card.

      As played?

      Preflop: UTG is extremely loose here. I think you have an easy squeeze to 32 cents for value and also for isolation purposes. You want to play headsup vs the whale.

      Flop: I think TPTK is a little too weak to lead on this monotone Flop. But at the same time, there's the fish who can have a ton of worse pairs so that mitigates this "lack of value" to a large extent. It's close.

      River: I'm a bit confused about his river line but I don't think they bluff like that too often so I think bet/fold is fine. Usually he'll have some sort of slowplayed flush.
