      UTG: $2.15
      UTG+1: $3.98
      UTG+2: $2.69
      Hero (MP1): $2.38
      MP2: $0.97
      CO: $2.85
      BTN: $2.42
      SB: $1.54
      BB: $4.59

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is MP1 with Q :club: K :heart:
      1 fold, UTG+1 calls $0.02, UTG+2 calls $0.02, Hero calls $0.02, 3 folds, SB calls $0.01, BB checks

      Flop: ($0.10) 6 :club: 5 :spade: Q :heart: (5 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, UTG+1 bets $0.22, UTG+2 folds, Hero raises to $0.68, SB folds, BB folds, UTG+1 calls $0.46

      Turn: ($1.46) A :spade: (2 players)
      UTG+1 bets $2, Hero requests TIME, Hero calls $1.68 all in

      River: ($4.82) J :spade: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      During the turn, i felt the player had a weird bet sizing. I felt he had a lower Q kicker. Is it too dangerous to call even if i knew he had a lower kicker?

      isolate pf, since KQ is strong enough hand and plays fine postflop with initiative
      against overbet I´d just call or fold on the flop. Don´t think you should play there stacks, since very often UTG+1 has there two pair or set

      I think it's better to fold turn, because we're in an unraised pot and you're already showing him on Flop that you have a hand. Just wait for better situations.

      Hello oribken,

      Guess while it's just a freeplay pot I wouldn't even Call it on flop vs his huge over-bet. Very likely we are beat and of course as you even Raise the flop I don't think that you beat much on turn anymore, standard fold.

      Best regards.
