      UTG1 raises to $0.20, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.20, 2 folds, BU calls $0.20, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.67) T, T, 6 (3 players)

      Turn: ($3.57) 4 (2 players)
      UTG1 checks, Hero bets $2.70, UTG1 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      I hoped that by calling behind, some of the aggro players in late position would try a squeeze. That didn't work out as I planned... How about the rest of the hand?

      Don't trust anyone in Rush, do it yourself! :)
      But tbh I like raising a lot more. On usual table with known gameflow and tendencies you may do this, but Rush is just way too random. I would hate myself if I turn out with AA in single raised 3way+ pot.
      Rest of the hand seems fine to me. Good thing here is that he will rarely put you on AA here and may go broke with some overcards with FD for example, that he may not do in 3bet pot.

      since you have nuts, you can also call it pf, but generally UTG range is quite strong itself, so i think you can also make small 3-bet to 0.62$ and then go from there
      Postflop: I think raise is reasonable. not really sure how he would play there flushdraws or overpairs and if you should bet that much on the river
      I´d likely would bet 1.5-1.7$ to make impression I´m bluffing that he can shove with overpairs or draws
