      6 Players

      UTG ($3.42)
      UTG+1 ($35.58)
      CO ($12.03)
      BTN ($11.36)
      Hero (SB) ($10.44)
      BB ($11.04)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.15, 6 players) Hero is SB J:diamond: A:diamond:
      UTG raises to $0.30, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.30, Hero calls $0.25, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: J:club: 8:club: 5:heart: ($1.20, 4 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks, UTG checks, BTN bets $0.60, Hero raises to $2, BB folds, UTG folds, BTN folds

      Is it better to squeeze pref? Or donk flop?

      call pf is fine
      Don ´t think UTG would open that light that you should get all-in that spot with AJs
      Postflop play is fine. You´re not getting away your stack if UTG bets so waiting someone to bet and then c/r seems quite good idea

      Hello wlcKeD,

      Preflop: Against UTG it's pretty marginal actually. Squeeze is out of question because if we squeeze we as well have to go broke against UTG but while we don't know his PFR it's kinda hard to do it for value. And even Calling is kinda marginal against his stack but it's doable while we don't have much to add. Although at some spots I'd basically just fold the hand to avoid any further mistakes playing in mutliway pot against them.

      As played
      Postflop: Guess I'd just donk myself here because most of the time they gonna just Check behind even with draws while it's multiway pot. We gonna protect with that move and as well find out where we stand.

      Best regards.
