      Hello Philfox1985,

      Preflop: Even raising from UTG is pretty marginal to play such PPs as 44. I would definitely keep an eye on them. But they are playable. Also while there is dead-blind poster I'd raise it bigger, standard would be $0,10.
      Postflop: Nothing much to add, we have to protect our hand. Rather just bet it and hope someone to have a hand. I would bet it even bigger ~$0,22.

      Best regards.

      Hey Veriz,

      just wondering 2 things - in this instance with dead money in pot (CO posts) and 4 handed any PP ok to raise?

      Also, if we want any Qx etc. hands to call is c/raising fine in this spot? I have been slow playing when I hit set and want to know what oyu thought of this line?

      Most likely I'd myself limp in rather than raise. Also if I am raisin then normal raise which = $0,10. :)

      No point to slowplay. With Check/Raising you are just representing a lot stronger hand range than just CBetting. Don't slowplay in those spots where you are OOP. It's just horrible and huge mistake.
