      1) since player raised UTg I think floating is likely a better option than c/r, if you want to make a play. Also you could just lead to him, since I think he would not continue with his lower pp-s
      2) because of previous hand i think you should c/r flop, bet big turn and shoev any river card
      He would call you down/shove worse pp-s than QQ or even draws/A high, Tx
