      Titan Poker 0.50/1.00, hand converted by the iPoker Converter at Talking-Poker

      saw flop | saw showdown

      Button ($50.10)
      SB Hero ($51.00)
      BB ($52.30)
      UTG UTG ($23.23)
      UTG+1 ($48.89)

      Preflop: Hero is in the SB with K:diamond: A:heart:
      UTG calls 0.50, 2 folds, Hero raises to 2.50, 1 fold, UTG calls 2.00.

      Flop (5.75) 8:heart: 4:heart: 5:heart:
      Hero bets 3.80, UTG moves all-in for 20.73, Hero calls 16.93

      this is standard, isn't it?

      Against pair it is call, but I´m not sure that UTG would push with draw or one pair hand here. I would most likely put him on set. Depends a lot to the villain, imo it is not 100% autocall.

      lol you can't realy just polarize his range to a set, he could have anything (any heart, top pair, small overpair etc)

      Depends on the player- these pushes are a lot to protect their hand not to get us fold.

      Definetly, but the board is so connected that there are many other posible hands:6hX,3hX,A8, K8,78 with one heart ans so forth.

      Depends on the UTG playing style. Against tag you could throw away most of your hands.

      Against set you have 30% equity and your getting 1:1.8 on you money to if add in some more hands (over pairs and such) the call becomes profitable

      My fast calculation. Call 16.93 to win 47.21 on flop is realy good odds. You need to win 36% of the time. If you think he has worse than two pair 15% of the time you have desent odds and even better odds if he is able to move in with hands like AK with king of hearts.

      I agree with Kaitz, but I still think this is a call most of the time.

      UTG limp/call/push just screams set, but I think that's also a good reason to read bluff. It all depends on instinct against your opponent. Without reads I'll fold here, but if he seems LAG or even Loose-Passive I'll insta-call.

      This is an easy call 100% of the time, its not even close.
