      Hello StingerMk,

      Well, the problem here most likely is that we wont have that much fold equity. And the equity needed wouldn't be good enough to go broke directly here.

      Board: J:heart: Q:spade: T:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    57.04%  56.21%   0.83% { QTs+, JTs, 98s, QTo+, JTo, 98o }
      UTG+1  42.96%  42.13%   0.83% { As7s }

      We would need something like 47% equity which includes even rake. So therefore, I am not a big fan on raising but rather just playing it passively.

      And as played seems to be fine if you expect to get like ~$0,70 on the river from him if you still hit either your K or flush-card. :( But the question is if we really do win the money from him, will he pay?

      Also it's not a ten which gives you a straight but King and your have only 3 outs of them since one out goes also for the FD. So 12 clean outs.

      Best Regards.
