      UTG ($8.50)
      UTG+1 ($5.17)
      CO ($4)
      Hero ($5.03)

      Dealt to Hero Q:spade: J:spade:

      UTG raises to $0.08, UTG+1 raises to $0.24, fold, Hero calls $0.24, fold, fold, fold

      FLOP ($0.62) 2:heart: K:spade: T:spade:

      [color=red]UTG+1 bets $0.44


      As I am likely slight ahead, should I raise the flop and take more variance line by trying to get in , or cold call IP?

      Hello doctorkgb,

      Preflop: Well, standard fold I'd say. :D

      As played
      Postflop: Well, as you went for such a Call then I'd most likely raise it here and get it in. Even against some strong made hands and made hands we still get pretty good equity:

      Board: 2:heart: K:spade: T:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    48.50%  48.50%   0.00% { QsJs }
      UTG+1  51.50%  51.50%   0.00% { KK+, TT, AKs, AKo }

      Best regards.

      Shure! I allways muck my suited broadways on the BU in 6max. Sometymes I even fold pocket kings, following my philosophy and thouhught process that he might have aces :D

      Yeah, well you get the point. That if you Call in this spot the UTG could easily 4bet. :P You will never know that. Of course it's a possibility to Call here but you will never know what does UTG have in the mind. Could be as well even trapping. Plus how do you consider a 3bettor to overplay postflop if you wont hit?
