      NL Holdem $0.02(BB) Replayer
      SB ($0.58)
      BB ($2)
      UTG ($2.30)
      UTG+1 ($0.60)
      UTG+2 ($2.47)
      MP1 ($1.73)
      Hero ($2.18)
      BTN ($1.97)

      Dealt to Hero Q:club: A:club:

      UTG calls $0.02, UTG+1 raises to $0.04, UTG+2 calls $0.04, fold, Hero calls $0.04, fold, SB calls $0.03, fold, UTG calls $0.02

      Since he min raised, I thought I should call and see the flop.


      FLOP ($0.22) Q:diamond: 4:heart: A:heart:

      SB checks, UTG checks, UTG+1 bets $0.21, UTG+2 folds, Hero calls $0.21, SB folds, UTG folds

      Since I have 2 pair, I just called, not to scare him off. Should I raise for value and protection?


      TURN ($0.64) Q:diamond: 4:heart: A:heart: J:club:

      UTG+1 bets $0.35 (AI), Hero calls $0.35

      RIVER ($1.34) Q:diamond: 4:heart: A:heart: J:club: 9:heart:


      Thanks :)

      Hello Gloryne,

      Against UTG1 stack we are anyways going broke. :D There is not much to protect. Only reason to Call here is to induce some players to join in. Although I guess you can as well just raise there. But definitely Calling the flop and shipping the turn is fine also.

      Although you could pretty much raise the amount of UTG has left on flop as well to protect your hand from any kind of draw.

      Best regards.
