      Preflop: Hero is SB with J:heart: , J:spade:
      UTG2 raises to $0.04, MP1 raises to $0.17, 6 folds, UTG2 calls $0.13.

        im thinking here that the min raise utg sometimes signals AA or some high pp, so i was gonna raise, big, cuz i was oop, but then some other jackass reraises him, signaling AK,JJ,QQ,KK, and other shitty hands like AQ AJ. I feel if I reraise it has to be for stacks, and I am still not 100% sure why UTG2 min raises utg. hes instacalling with QQ KK AA AK for sure, and player to his left could easily have some big hand as well. I decide its +EV to just get out of the way here, because i dont want to flat, set mining is out of the question here if im up against AA KK or QQ. the reraise is just too much to flat.

        reason for fold:-afraid of min raise and reraise
        -oop, cant just flat
        cant reraise due to obvious AA KK QQ detection from past hands on other players in NL2..

      Hello ilovemagic,

      Yeah, I do agree that most likely folding is going to be safer option here vs MP1 unless we expect him to raise like a maniac. Hard to continue on the flop anyways so folding is totally fine if you haven't even invested any cent.

      Best Regards.
