      preflop - raise for izolation or to win preflop usualy ppl tend to call utg suited conector,low pockets

      flop - after 2 calls preflop , check of the BB and utg shove i presume he hit his set or has a medium overpair his range should be 44,55,77,88-tt or some kind of flush draw and BB range aj+ , some low-medium pocket pair

      so i think is profitably to call utg shove having enough equity to call but when BB shoves i don`t know what range of calling and check/raising it should be especialy that he shoves when someone is already all-in

      it`s ok to call in this spot? what range i should think has BB?

      pot odds 2-1

      outs 4 of 6 and 9 clubs - 13 outs - at least 1 dead out so 11-12 outs so around 44-48% equity i think

      Hello spartacusro,

      Preflop: I guess I would even isolate like $0,25.
      Postflop: I don't really like the UTG2 shove for the reason that in long run we will likely lose money if we make such calls. Therefore while we haven't invested much into the pot I'd just fold it. And as played I'd still fold it, BB could easily have sets there and such hands with he is Check/Shoving.

      Best regards.
