      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3:
      $2.00
      CO:
      $4.65
      BU:
      $2.66
      SB:
      $2.69
      BB:
      $2.00
      UTG1:
      $1.96
      UTG2 (Hero):
      $2.00
      MP1:
      $2.11
      MP2:
      $0.97


      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with A, K.
      UTG1 calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.08, MP1 calls $0.08, MP2 raises to $0.20, 7 folds, MP1 calls $0.12.

      Never really sure what to do in this situation. SHC says to fold here but given the relatively small raise and the fact that it's suited i'm thinking maybe a call would have been the better option?

      Hello numbnutter,

      Well, with the dead money in the pot and against MP2 stack I would likely just ship it. No point to Call anyways with the hand being in multiway pot, we either fold it as you did or ship, both are fine.

      Although we could this kind of raise take as a strong move as well, depends really on the opponent and his PFR/3bet.

      Best Regards.
