      Nice hand, a couple of things I noticed:

      Flop: I would raise x3 to 54c and hope to get it in with TPGK + open ended SD.

      Turn: I would make a normal size bet and call his shove.

      Hello Skraggy,

      Welcome to the English NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Flop: Don't like the raise in first place here while vs strong made hands your equity isn't going to be very good here. You also have another guy to act. If we get it in vs strong range here our equity:

      Board: J:heart: Q:heart: T:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    62.79%  54.04%   8.75% { JJ-TT, AKs, K9s+, QTs+, JTs, 98s, AhTh, AKo, KJo+, QJo, JTo, 98o }
      UTG+1  37.21%  28.46%   8.75% { KcQc }

      Therefore I'd just go for a Call or if you even decide to go for the raise then should definitely do it bigger and do it as you would protect your hand. With your raising you ain't forcing the opponent tot make mistakes cause he can easily call with FD.

      As played
      Turn: Just ship it vs his stack if you went for value-raise on the flop.

      Best Regards.
