      UTG+2 ($3.80)
      CO ($32.36)
      BTN ($15.27)

      Dealt to Hero Q:diamond: K:club:

      fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.56, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $1.50, fold, UTG+1 raises to $9.50 (AI), Hero?

      Hi,

      I usually treat 2bb raise as 2 limpers. But this time is 2.24bb. How do you treat it? If Hero raise, how much? I mean we usually raise 4bb+1bb per limper. Besides, I think Hero should fold to the shove. What do you think about it? Thanks.

      Given the SSS rules, you should fold here :) you are over 25bb stack. You are taking risks to reraise a UTG+1 min raise without stats or read with KQo. I'd go for an easy fold here. If you want to play the hand I'd rather call in position with KQ.

      If you have AA, how much you raise?

      If you got AA you play it normally raise pot size or a bit undder to give you 3/4 pot to pot size if called.

      Yes I agree, I would raise to $1.5-$1.75 with everything I have

      Best regards,

      Hi Gerv,

      As played, Hero call or fold?
      I think fold is the right move.

      Hi,

      I don;t like a call. So its fold or raise.
      Since UTG is still unknown I would fold the hand since UTG limp or min-raise range usually is stronger than KQo.

      If you have reads/stats that KQo is ahead of his range, raise it for value.

      After re-raise its a clear fold.

      Yes I would fold, calculate your KQo vs his tight range and you see you are screwedd
