      I'd likely fold it preflop, it's pretty and everything but against a raising range from UTG you'll get into domination problems way too often. If you're confident you can play that profitably in position without getting caught in those troubles then it's fine.

      As played postflop with your hand you can't really get it wrong given that you have both a huge draw and showdown value if he's c-betting there with an underpair or other whiffed cards. I'd probably raise it up and shove over a 3-bet myself, if he's a tag you can probably get him to fold stuff like TPTK in that spot. Your line is okay too.

      Hope it helps.

      There were 3 dead blinds there (mp2,mp3 and CO) and I suspected that UTG2 wants to steal the pot. That's why I called pf. In normal conditions I would probably fold.
