      BB checks, Hero bets $6.50, BB folds

      Hero shows 8:spade: 9:club:

      Hero wins $8.93

      We are deep (not really though, but 120bb should be enough?) vs UTG's range so I opt to call and play a speculative hand IP - would be much better if it was suited, but hey, happens :f_biggrin:

      I would usually just call @flop cause it isn't very wet or anything, BUT since UTG opened, then assuming he has AQ/AK/KQ etc in his range then I wouldn't really want to see any more overcards falling on the turn so decided to raise it up a bit.

      Is that okay or am I losing value longterm raising there?

      I like usually raising that flop with quite a lot of hands, so I think players would not give me any credit, so they just see my af and going or at least calling at least tp+. If you usually doesn´t raise, then I think you can also call, since flop is dry and they don´t expect you to make moves on that board too often, so they would b/f their overpairs
