      A fold would have been possible? Any better ways to play the hand?

      Hello diutza,

      Pretty sick when we face a raise from such passive guy but I don't think that I would get it away in this spot. According to his VPIP I would even consider him having the K2 in his range and definitely some other strong combos.

      Board: T:diamond: 2:spade: K:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    39.31%  38.80%   0.51% { TT, 22, K2s, AsJs, QsJs, K2o }
      UTG+1  60.69%  60.19%   0.51% { KcTs }

      Therefore either the question is if you get it in on flop or play it this way as you played.

      And actually the only problem which I would avoid is that we are 170BB deep with BU and I wouldn't raise such hands being OOP. Rather just fold while we as well have a station behind us and the BU will just get perfect odds for a Call.

      Best regards.
