      PokerStars - $0.02 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (MP): $2.03
      CO: $0.59
      BTN: $2.12
      SB: $2.00
      BB: $2.43
      UTG: $1.76

      SB posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has T:spade: A:spade:

      UTG raises to $0.04, Hero calls $0.04, fold, BTN calls $0.04, fold, BB calls $0.02

      Flop: ($0.17, 4 players) 4:spade: 2:spade: 3:diamond:
      BB bets $0.12, UTG raises to $0.24, Hero raises to $1.99 and is all-in, fold, fold, UTG calls $1.48 and is all-in

      BB plays 30/20/4
      UTG 11/5/inf

      BB's donk could mean anything, most of the time small overpair. UTG's play looks very much like the overpair. And I'm behind only against AA. I like my play, altough I don't like how i shoved the flop.

      UTG may fold overpairs and you have too much equity to fold your hand. Since you should also with 22-44 I like your semibluff shove with ATs, you should be ahead on equity against 66-KK, so it is never wrong getting all-in being ahead.

      board: 2s3s4d
      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      66-KK 44.35% 19,422 675
      AsTs 55.65% 24,453 675

      best regards,

      I would prefer to fold ATs preflop.
      Against a 11/5 UTG raise range we are way behind!!

      As played i would shove that flop all day long!!

      I'm calling this to hit a big hand, like straight, or nut flush, like I would call with AXs. As you said, villains is very tight, and given that he's raising from utg, that gives me even bigger implied odds. I think that's profitable situation given that we are in position, and will be able to control the pot if we hit top pair, and won' go broke with it.

      Against that kind of players this is -EV play!

      Starting with 2 suited cards, the probability of:
      Flopping a flush - 118/1 (0.84%)
      Flopping a flush draw - 8.1/1 (10.9%)
      Flopping a backdoor flush draw(3 flush cards) - 1.4/1 (41.6%)
      Making a flush by the river - 15/1 (6.4%)

      And concider that many times of this 6.4% villain will fold if not hit.

      Most of the times you will face very difficult decisions and you are going to lose your money.

      PS. Dont forget that at this hand you flop like god!!!!
