    UTG played a really strange line, deffo make a note that if he bets insane small OTF, it "could" mean he is strong.

    I do think your raise is a bit on the large side in respect to his small bet and the pot (85%). I would make a smaller raise, smt like 30BB. Then, his shove could be a fold for me.

    Betting this big basically potcommits you, and will polarise his range for sure. Only the top of his range continues (QQ+, AJ, flushdraws, 9-10, ). And most of those will shove rather than call.

    Against that range you are not doing very well (~60% dog) so calling might not be so provitable.

    It's a high variance spot to say the least
