      UTG ($3.52)
      CO ($4)
      BTN ($5.20)
      dienaszaglis (SB) ($4.02)
      BB ($4.18)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.06, 5 players) dienaszaglis is SB K:spade: Q:spade:
      UTG calls $0.04, 1 fold, BTN raises to $0.18, Hero?

      UTG = 33/0
      BU = 38/38, AF: 4.0, 26h

      Is folding the worst option here? 3bet for value seems the way to go. Calling is not that bad either, but I would not be comfortable playing this hand multi-way, as UTG most likely would call.

      I think either 3-betting or calling should be most common lines. Folding has 0 EV and if you feel uncomfortable playing oop against that player, then it is always fine to take that line (especially against big raise), but generally I think you would show more profit if you continue as strong hand as KQs. Likely I would c/r on Kxx and Qxx boards and play for stacks if I just call pf.

      best regards,
