      BU:
      $8.40
      UTG+1:
      $2.75
      Hero:
      $5.80
      UTG:
      $19.50

      0.10/0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (10 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.9 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q:heart: , A:spade:
      UTG raises to $0.50, UTG+1 calls $0.50, 5 folds, BU calls $0.50, Hero ...

      This is probably clear fold, but this is not so important. I have question about ranges on which can I put my oponents. I put them on following ranges:

      UTG: 22+,ATs+,KJs+,ATo+,KJo+
      UTG + 1: 99-22,AQs-AJs,KJs+,AQo-AJo,KJo+
      BU: 99-22,AQs-AJs,KJs+,AQo-AJo,KJo+

      I am not sure if this applies for concrete situation because game was a bit wild. But are these ranges legal for unknown EP bettor (UTG+1) and callers(UTG, BU)?

      You don`t have Pokertracker yet, right?

      otherwise its a bit abstract to determine range, but your is definately too loose, even for the wild game) I wish I had such UTG players))

      UTG: TT+, AQs+, AQo+ (adding 99, AJ, KQ seems wild enough to me))
      UTG + 1: 99-22, AQs-AJs, KQs+, AQo-AJo, KQo+
      BU: 99-22, AQs-ATs, KJs+, AQo-ATo, KJo+, suited connectors - even looser, he is getting good odds and has positional advantage.

      against unknowns you have to fold AQ

      Thanks! No I don't have Tracker yet. I did some research on Poker Tracker stats, but I think it would be just overhead at this time. I realy want to learn basic SSS first. I heard a lot that poker is not about cards but opponents. I totaly agree with that, but just don't want to confuse myself with some more advanced reads and stats. Only read I am trying to implement now is to figure out which player at my table is SS player. I will get tracker when I will reach and establish myself at NL50 (hope this will happen soon).

      I don't think this hand is a fold, more likely an all-in, UTG just mini-raised.
      Am I mistaking here?

      yep, sorry, I missed it was a minraise, i thought it is NL 10)) then of course it is worth pushing.

      I just can't find enough equity here. I need more than 44% in case of one caller.

      UTG range is looser this way, I offered the range based on the assumption that he is making a normal raise. Probably the range will be something close to what you assumed in the very beginning, maybe even a bit more loose. + you have a fold equity
