      Hello StraGus,

      After we raise here we would need ~35% equity and against a range something like this:

      Board: K:spade: 7:diamond: Q:diamond:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    60.33%  60.17%   0.16% { KK-QQ, 77, AKs, KTs+, AKo, KTo+ }
      UTG+1  39.67%  39.51%   0.16% { Td9d }

      We actually even get it. So therefore we can't really fold.

      The question is rather if we should raise it at all here? That would practically depend how often he steals and CBs. :) And according to that I would base here.

      Best Regards.
