      Folding is never an option on the turn with your awkward stack size.

      Raise more on the flop - at least $0,40 (with your stack, even shove would be an option). When both players call, you might be behind.

      When utg bets into you again on turn, you're probably beat, QT, Q9, 22, KJ are hands that beat us and at the same time those are hands which could be limped preflop and played like this post-flop. I don't see higher sets.

      Play rather with full stack.

      Hello anhvusa,

      Add to full stack. :)

      Preflop: Don't limp those hands, if you want to play them rather just isolate and might even take down the pot right here and take the initiative if even not.

      As played
      Postflop: I'd even consider raising it bigger ~$0,40 on flop although with your stack size it's not an option to fold on turn. :(

      Best Regards.
