      Hero mucks K:spade: J:spade: (High Card, Ace)
      UTG+1 wins $0.97


      Preflop: there is a way to fold, but villain is pretty loose and its playable against him IP with KJs. After preflop: maybe raise on flop with these great odds? If as played, I didn't see any point bluffing on river, since his probable Ax was going to call.

      Hello faronel,

      By cold-calling often times you put yourself into trouble with such hands unless you know the opponent good and have good postflop play against him. By just calling and hoping to hit VS UTG range which could be stronger wont be so profitable.

      But overall as played I like the idea of just calling while we even get the odds. Another possibility would be to Raise the flop and get the fold equity while his CB is really weak there and which I would most likely do when I play this way my hand and happen to hit such a draw + see a small CB from him.

      Best Regards.
