      Haven't played FR in a while, not too sure if AQo is allowed from UTG. I think so though.

      On flop instead of calling I would 3bet because of the flushdraw and fold if he shoves / 4bet or 3bet/shove in case I have a read that he might be doing those raises with Ax / flushdraw / KK.

      aa well i dont actually play with the chart - i started off with it but it's too restricting. AJ+ 99+ is my open raise from UTG.

      AJo is the lowest unsuited ace I'm allowed to play at 6max, I am pretty sure you really shouldnt open that one in FR UTG.

      And why don't you raise the lower pp for set mining? at 6max im raising any pp UTG :) .

      well i'm pretty comfortable playing it UTG. i wouldn't go any less and suited is only an extra 2% equity so it's reallly not that much better. and limping low pocket pairs and calling a raise is better than raise/folding. you can also take at least a cbet off of them if they have the initiative when you flop a set. it has proven to be very profitable for me to limp small pocket pairs in fr :)

      Hello DrDunne,

      Don't like your Call on flop at all, rather just get it in right on flop, no point to Call and give away free cards which may even scare him away or complete some draw.

      Best Regards.
