      BTN: $11.62
      SB: $10.05
      Hero (BB): $17.38
      UTG: $22.79 16/13/41(Afreq) on 115h sample.
      CO: $11.93

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BB with A :spade: Q :heart:
      UTG raises to $0.40, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.30

      Flop: ($0.85) T :club: 7 :club: T :heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $0.63, Hero calls $0.63

      Turn: ($2.11) 8 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.40, UTG folds

      In this hand i just wanted to ask is this a good play to represent a monster on paired board? Everything fits for me to have really strong hand here and i think that this way we can get all PPs and AK to fold. If we check/call again we're not ahead enough of the times IMO, we don't like any J or K and also when we hit our A we can still be beat by AK.

      I wanted to ask about one thing, haven't checked in the general poker discussion forum yet. I've noticed regs having stats for raising 1st something like this (This situation too):
      EP: 20%; MP: 12%; CO: 25%; BU 30%;.....
      Should we really assume that his MP range could be something like our percieved UTG range and don't give so much credit when they actually raise from UTG?

      Hello Pichux,

      I don't really get the line of yours, what kind of info did you get by Check/Call on turn and then Betting the turn? I'd rather just donk myself on flop, if he is going to fold weaker hands then he will do it on flop also. More often such tight opponents tend to do so.

      Best regards.
