      Hello Salivanth,

      Well, the problem here is that he is rather going to have some strong hand. Doubt that he is Check/Raising just pure air here. Obviously we could put also FDs in his Check/Raise range but would he really do on such a board which hardly also hits our raising range? Doubt that. For the given reason we at the best can consider playing for the implied odds:

      Board: K:spade: Q:diamond: J:diamond:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    72.62%  67.74%   4.88% { JJ, AKs, ATs, KJs+, QJs, T9s, AKo, ATo, KJo+, QJo, T9o }
      UTG+1  27.38%  22.50%   4.88% { QsTs }

      Although even for the implied odds it's kinda problematic since we can't be sure which outs are clean and which not. Any 9 couldn't be an out, any Ace comes then he might not pay us much. So for that reason I might even consider making a crying fold here if I consider him not paying us.

      Best Regards.
