      Any thoughts on this play, better to raise this hand in this spot?

      In this case I was about to leave the table anyway, so decided I'm only playing the very top hands.

      As played, it looks like one of the villians could have hit a flush on the river or be holding a jack for a straight, so if they had called me I potentially may have lost a few.

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      BB:
      $2.29
      UTG2:
      $0.84

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Hello Philfox1985,

      From UTG it's not a must raise. If you feel your postflop play be more comfortable and you are able to play such hands OOP then sure why not. But practically ain't a must. Could of course as well depend on the table like if you have some aggressive 3bettors, or more of looser side players.

      Best regards.
