      Hello,

      what to do with this marginal hand against an UTG raise from a shortie? I folded because I thought against a shortstacked folding is the safest play, he might shove on later streats a wide range and I'd face a difficult spot.

      Thanks and best wishes!

      Hello Dback357,

      It's either ship the money or just fold as you did. And of course ain't wrong to fold it here if you expect the opponent being rather tighter side. Nice hand!

      Best regards.
