      V:17/7/30 hands

      I decided to raise (get it in) on flop because I belive that most of the time outs for A and Q are clear.

      Turn, I was suprised by his call. My turn play was auto play, without thinking. I was ready to get it in on flop, so I continue on turn, however, probably check back would be better?

      so my two question are what to do on turn, and second, if I decide to bet, should I call shove or fold to reraise?

      in my oppionion you should check behind on turn and treat yourself with a free card. Because raise preflop from UTG usually indicates strong hand. Because the opponent is unknown we have to assume that he raises UTG with hands like 99+,AJs+,KQs,AQo+ and his call to reraise on flop narrows the range a bit more.
      If you dicede to bet you are pot commited and would have to call a push, because you get EQ:0.95/3.68=26% and against such narrow range as 99+ you get :

      Equity Win Tie
      MP2 72.47% 72.47% 0.00% 99+
      MP3 27.53% 27.53% 0.00% AhQh

      Hello Janosikgdy,

      Rarely doubt that you gonna have a lot of fold equity on turn. It's a standard spot to Check behind and rather avoid exactly such a spot what happened. You getting it in with just a draw while in long run you will rather loose money.

      But as played... well it was your idea behind the pot to get in all-in. :) Should also have the answer for turn-play.

      Best regards.
