      fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.08, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.24, UTG+1 calls $0.16

      Hero checks, UTG+1 bets $1.50, Hero folds

      UTG+1 wins $1.21

      Any thoughts, mine are that he flopped the queen or has QQ+, I had to click on Time on the ZOOM cuz of that hand, no info on UTG1 cuz not using HUD for the moment :) )

      Nasty, nasty flop!

      A straight draw comes and you check after donking the flop. I think I would have gone with bet/fold.

      The $1.50 raise is so big after a check that it makes me think it's for protection. If he had a Qx, TT or 99 I suspect that they would have bet smaller for value.

      I await Veriz's comments with interest.

      Hello FaTDoGBG,

      He is rarely betting there this amount with FH. He could easily gain a lot more value by betting smaller and he shouldn't be scared of any draws there. I would just Bet/Bet/Bet while such a guy may easily even have draws there and of course JJ as well.

      Best Regards.
