      UTG (Hero):

      CO:
      $0.94
      BU:
      $8.48


      Preflop: Hero is UTG with Q, Q.
      Hero raises to $0.08, 2 folds, MP1 calls $0.08, 3 folds, BU calls $0.08, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.27) 4, 2, 4 (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.27, MP1 raises to $1.12, BU folds, Hero ????

      This is a spot that is always causing me trouble. Against an unknown am I stacking off with an overpair? What about if I had a stronger overpair such as KK or AA? If the board wasnt paired, would it change anything?

      Hello esuohdla,

      I wouldn't even CBet pot size here but rather ~$0,20 and reevaluate further actions. Against MP1 stack I am going broke here. He may easily even have worse PPs. Also if he even had 4x or even 22 would he raise like that while having another opponent behind us? Most likely just tries to protect his PPs.

      Best regards.
