      Both villians were pretty much stations and board is fairly wet.

      Figured it was worth a raise given how likely they may be too call. Bit too much perhaps & they would struggle to call with worse?

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K:spade: , Q:heart:
      2 folds, UTG2 raises to $0.06, 4 folds, BU calls $0.06, SB folds, Hero calls $0.04.

      Hero checks, UTG2 bets $0.1, BU calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.59, 2 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Preflop: I would fold this esp against a raise from UTG2 who you deemed a calling station =)

      Flop: Nice play. I would have probably done the same. C/R/Fold is probably the best line for an easily dominated hand like KQ. Fortunately for us that he didnt have a K. If he calls the check raise, I would consider check/folding the turn.

      Its doubtful I'm considering giving up my hand on later streets.

      We are totally pot committted against UTG+2, the button smooth called the original bet so we are likely looking at a draw of some kind or perhaps a weaker pair.

      If the button was to shove over the top of my raise on the flop I think a fold is best, but apart from than that I can't see an issue. Again on turn, it really depends on the card, check/fold could be considered a valid line but only as villian is very passive so we can assume he would only bet if he has 2 pairs +.

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Preflop: Well, against UTG and his stack I'd rather just fold it preflop. To avoid any further mistakes.

      As played
      Postflop: Do you think that they are going to CBet a lot here? Rather doubt that. I'd rather just donk myself here and avoid them Checking behind. With Check/Raise we can easily even isolate yourselves against better hands.

      Best regards.
