      No Limit Hold'em Tournament T700/T1,400/T175
      Buy-in: $1.96+$0.24 USD Hold'em No Limit
      PokerStars
      8 players
      Formatted by pokercopilot.com: Poker HUD for Mac and Windows

      Stacks:
      UTG - UTG (T18,280) 21/15/9 [VPIP/PFR/3B] 233 Hands Also, cbet flop = 90%
      UTG+1 - UTG+1 (T15,252)
      MP - MP (T48,355)
      MP2 - MP2 (T18,390)
      CO - CO (T12,623)
      BTN - BTN (T3,805)
      SB - SB (T42,643)
      BB - Hero (T69,270)

      Preflop: (T3,500, 8 players) Hero is BB with A:club: 7:spade:
      UTG raises to T2,800, 6 folds, Hero calls T1,400

      Flop: 9:club: 6:club: A:diamond: (T7,700, 2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets T2,310, Hero calls T2,310

      Turn: 8:spade: (T12,320, 2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets T12,995 (all-in), Hero???

      I called in BB for good odds. Small cbet = call with TP. On turn, I can't think of a hand that he would play this way that I am beating. I think he would check behind with worse Aces or underpairs or non-made hand. Any mistakes here by hero?

      1 fold, Uncalled bet of T12,995 returned to UTG

      Total Pot: T12,320

      UTG wins T12,320

      Defending with a weak ace could be a problem against a UTG range and you have position disadvantage as well. Off course you get good odds, but if you hit top pair you will be often dominated and that cost you more chips most of the time than you get from him on long run. I would just fold pre-flop and post-flop I would play the hand the same.
