      Hello abc794,

      Preflop: I'd actually raise it even bigger here ~$0,20 at least.
      Postflop: It's actually pretty close on turn to Call. We need ~34% equity to make it break-even. Although against something like this:

      Board: A:diamond: 6:club: 7:heart:  T:club:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    32.42%  31.24%   1.18% { Ac8c }
      UTG+1  67.58%  66.39%   1.18% { 77-66, ATs-A9s, A7s-A6s, 98s, 76s, ATo, A7o-A6o, 98o, 76o }

      You ain't getting it very easily. Therefore I might even consider folding it on turn vs his pot size bets.

      Best regards.
