      hi 9d2c

      this is an interesting hand. first of all i really think you should have folded to this UTG raise. UTG range is assumed to be very tight and i dont think there is a way in which to play this hand profitably.
      preflop: fold.
      postflop: you really shouldn't check such a flop, however if you think UTG will fire a cbet then plan to check/raise. you cannot fold - you have a strong hand here. you cannot call - this would allow draws to catch up ESPECIALLY in a multiway pot such as this. so on the flop, since you checked, you should definitely raise once you are bet into - raise to about $1.60. the only hands which beat us here are sets but there are also many hands which will pay us off, so bet for value.

      nice hand.

      Hello 9d2c,

      Welcome to the NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Preflop: Well, I don't like that much the Call. You are often putting yourself into trouble spots and which even seems that you didn't play the correctly your hand.

      As played
      Postflop: Well, you should bet here rather than Check or whatever your plan was. You have to protect your hand. So therefore if you even do Check then you have to Check/Raise and protect your hand than Check/Call and give them good odds for any kind of draw.

      Best Regards.
