      Hi Quirked,

      I think you've played ok.

      Definately raising your 99 UTG. I'd probably prefer a little larger than min rasie since we have the whole table still to act and giving everyone a very good price. I'd probably prefer 2.5x minimum, but if is your standard then i guess thats ok.

      Min 3bet we absolutely have to call, the odds are immense.

      Nice flop for us. I think donking out is an option. We could then measure his reaction, but we would miss out value from a Cbet from Ax hands. So I think checking is good.

      Once he Cbets. You might want a read on his range and style. Caling allows him a free card, but also a chance to bet Ax again perhaps. Check raising allin means we can only really get called by better hands or hands with good equity like AhQh. That being said there is already 690 in the pot, compared to our remaining stack, taking that down now and folding out any overcard equity he might have is probably still worth it.

      Like I said I think you've played it fine. Playing too passively here or folding weakly would be a mistake i think.
