Why do we bet the flop? We're betting into 3 other players with just middle pair? What is the reason for this bet? There are no draws out there so we can't get value from any worse as A high or 2x isn't going to be calling the flop multiway in a limped pot. I prefer a check here, expecting to see the pot get checked through and folding to a bet.

On the turn I don't think we can fold to his raise. It's an ultra dry board and we're only beaten by 99, 22, 59, 52 and 5K+. Even though we only have 20 hands on UTG it's quite obvious that he's pretty fishy and since his AF is not N/A we can assume he does know where the "Bet" button is, I think he can be raising here with 9x or even as a complete bluff repping trips, and because it's a very dry board (Even fish sort of understand board texture )

I do mostly agree with you but it was a freeplay pot and I didn t wanna go broke. Veriz could you also evaluate it

Hello Sikac,

Flop: I don't mind even the Bet on the flop here. We still even can be ahead or either get value from even draws or hit something on further streets.
Turn: Most likely I would also tend to fold while it's just a freeplay pot. Not really worth to continue because for as at the best it's going to be a flippy spot. We haven't invested much into the pot and we can't be sure with what the guy raises either but it's mostly going to be towards strong hands:

Board: 9 5 2  5
Equity     Win     Tie
UTG    54.76%  47.84%   6.93% { 99, 22, A5s, K5s, Q5s, J5s, T5s, 85s, 75s, 65s, 54s, A5o, 65o }
UTG+1  45.24%  38.31%   6.93% { Qs5d }

We would need ~46% equity. So practically it's a break-even spot unless we widen even up his range.

Best Regards.
