The utg raiser who called my 3b asked a question in chat before folding?

This table looks ok stack size wise. It looks like we all can play here. Great river for me but I could not put utg on a hand other than AA or KK.

The raw text is too much for me in other HA if I try to understand a hand and comment. You can see the hand here >>TLDR<<

Did I push too much on the river so a smaller bet gets called?
Just chipping up.

Hey Forrest,

I would 3-bet a lot bigger preflop since you are OOP and stacks are a little deeper. For your price villain can call profitably with a wide range of hands utilizing positional advantage against you.

Flop and turn sizing looks good given the drawy texture. On the river it's probably tough to get a call from worse since all his made hands are bluffcatchers - I generally like betting big to make your bet look bluffy, but I feel that especially in Zoom poker people are a little less likely to call bigger riverbets with bluffcatchers too much, so maybe I would have made it just a tad smaller than you did.
