      Hi gyus, I want to ask to this hand, should I go broke here? any suggestion how to play it right in this spot?
      Info on players involved, UTG+1 was new at table, CO played 75/5, bet on the flop only when he had something.

      Full Tilt Poker $0.02/$0.05 No Limit Hold'em - 9 players

      Hero (MP2): $5
      CO: $4.39
      BTN: $5.00
      SB: $4.17
      BB: $6.43
      UTG: $0.65
      UTG+1: $1.73
      UTG+2: $10.45
      MP1: $5.00

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is MP2 with J :heart: A :heart:
      1 fold, UTG+1 calls $0.05, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, CO calls $0.20, BTN calls $0.20, 2 folds, UTG+1 calls $0.15

      Flop: ($0.87) A :spade: 4 :heart: 5 :heart: (4 players)
      UTG+1 bets $0.15, Hero raises to $1.32, CO raises to $4.19 all in, BTN folds, UTG+1 calls $1.38 all in, Hero ??

      Always go broke here. UTG is probably donking out with a flush draw and CO probably has a worse Ace, or he could have A4/A5 in which case you're flipping with him.

      if he has af more then 3 and wwsf more then 48 it s ok, but reraising into 2 is probably set or str8. he would flat with that pf so you have 35% eq in that case

      Hello B0st0n,

      Good to see new names posting, hopefully we will see more posts from you.

      About the game, I'd raise even bigger preflop, ~$0,25. Otherwise postflop I'd also go broke there, we are getting pretty good against any kind of hand, even if CO has set there, our equity is strong enough to make the profitable Call in long run because of the dead money in the pot already.

      Best regards.
