      Hi,


      If you think UTG1 shows up with a lot of pocket pairs that he's check/calling the flop with, you can barrel that turn card to make him fold those. He'll call again sometimes with hearts as well and not bluff the river, so you'll look slick valuebetting AK-high twice. Checking back is okay as well, especially against tight players that you believe will have Qx often when they call the c-bet.

      On the river frankly I think he has Qx because he looks like a reg opening 4x and all, so I assume he'd check/raise the flop with draws sometimes, making his river bluffing range somewhat tight. Coupled with the fact that it's rare for people to bluff by making 1/3 pot bets, I'd feel fine laying it down.


      Hope it helps.
