      I guess it's impossible not to go broke in this situation?

      Hi,


      It's not. 18/10 players aren't calling your 3bet with just about anything, and when they also call that flop they will most likely show up with a set or a lower overpair.

      Against that range the K turn is enough to scare off lower overpairs from a tight player especially when you bet huge, and even if it doesn't, they'll just call, they won't jam them in your face. So there are two ways you can play that differently.

      Depending on how likely you think UTG1 is to call another bet on the turn with a worse overpair, you can either check back that turn planning on valuebetting the river yourself / calling a donkbet from him, or bet smaller around $1.4 to entice lower overpairs to peel on the turn more often while giving yourself room to fold to a shove.


      Hope it helps.
