      Hey guys,

      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.25(BB) Replayer
      SB ($15.17)
      BB ($25)
      UTG ($25)
      Hero ($33.33)
      BTN ($11.03)

      Dealt to Hero 7:heart: 7:spade:

      UTG raises to $0.75, Hero calls $0.75, fold, fold, fold

      FLOP ($1.85) 4:club: T:diamond: 2:diamond:

      UTG bets $1.32, Hero calls $1.32

      TURN ($4.49) 4:club: T:diamond: 2:diamond: 5:club:

      UTG bets $2.50, Hero folds

      UTG wins $4.27

      Typical, but yet ragging hand. Guy is 20/20/13AF in 70 hands.
      What is the best way to play such hands?

      I would just setmine mostly - this is a pretty terrible board to float on imo.

      Why do you think that?
      It misses almost all of his range, yet he might still cbet it because he wants to get our SCs or even PPs to fold.

      However, if he thinks that way he is highly likely to follow through on the turn because he'll expect the PPs to call the flop.

      So call flop, fold turn is definitely not an option.
      Generally you can do both, calling and raising on the turn, but given that Ax just picked up a GS and therefore has 10 outs vs us I much prefer a small raise (therefore turning our and into a bluff).

      In case he calls we can even consider shoving any river because he usually doesn't have too strong of a hand - if he was strong he'd shove turn for value&protection.
