      saw flop

      Hero (UTG) ($62.35)
      UTG+1 ($12.20)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with A, Q
      Hero bets $1.50, 6 folds, SB calls $1.25, 1 fold

      Flop: ($3.50) 10, J, K (2 players)

      Total pot: $18.50 | Rake: $0.90

      would you call his raise or do something else?
      I wanted to get it in on flop, as any broadway card will kill the action on turn.

      I think just calling the raise is fine - although it would suck if the turn is a face card, you don't really need to protect against anything. Hopefully he will keep up the agresson but if not you can just bet yourself.

      I think he is mostly going to have bluffs/weaker made hands here with Ax, and probably won't be able to call your raise.

      Also if you are going to raise it up I think you should go with a normal bet size, as when you min-raise you are basically saying I have the nuts please call.

      Anyways that is my two cents. Good luck.

      In my opinion just get it in, because A or Q might kill action on turn even more and he will have sets, two pairs or maybe even a Qx that will pay you off.

      Hello oedipa,

      However I would prefer to Call there, the board ain't that dangerous and perfect spot to slowplay and let aggressor to bet the turn again and then likely shove. But it ain't a mistake to just get in on flop because with such a raise he is often ready to go broke here what wasn't the case this time but yes, I would likely raise it a bit bigger.

      Best regards.
