      UTG: $20.59 (82.4 bb)
      MP: $30.07 (120.3 bb)
      CO: $14.04 (56.2 bb)
      BTN: $14.54 (58.2 bb)
      Hero (SB): $25 (100 bb)
      BB: $17.41 (69.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:spade: Q:spade:
      UTG raises to $0.75, MP calls $0.75, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.65, BB folds

      Flop: ($2.50) 4:diamond: A:club: 2:club: (3 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $2.50, MP folds, Hero raises to $7.50, UTG raises to $19.84 and is all-in, Hero calls $12.34

      Villain is unknown, I'd assume weak player since not full stacked.

      What do you think it;s best to do here? I think I can also just call him down but not knowing anything about his barreling capabilities I opted to raise/play for stacks here to get max value from his draws.

      Better to call and get more value from his second pairs/bluffs?

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      Calling wouldn't bring that far, if we assume him having worse Ax hands even in his UTG range then rather just Check/Raise it and get it in as you did. Vs tight opponents of course we can't do it but more solid/looser ones it's an easy Check/Raise for value.

      He ain't going to bluff the turn anyways rather just Checking behind.

      Best Regards.
