      Hey gxtwo. Please be aware that I am helping you with your hand for my Lesson 4 of the beginners lessons :)

      Here is what I think.

      First of all the opponent is raising from UTG so he probably has a very good hand considering his vpip in early position is only 11%. When he bets on the flop there, with an over pair, the first thing I would take a look at his the turn cbet %. In this case, the opponent has a 13% cbet. I would definetly call there, and re-evaluate on the turn. If he checks the turn, I put him on AQs, AK. So you probably have to bet.When he bet the turn, I put him on a big pair like QQ+ and the best move would be to fold.

      Hello gxtwo,

      Easy fold on the turn, I doubt that we beat much there. :) His 2nd barreling range is most likely much better hand than yours. Sometimes I might even just fold it right on the flop and this would even be the one of the cases where he most likely has you beat.

      Best Regards.
