      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero has 4:heart: 4:club:

      UTG raises to $0.08, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.08, fold, fold, fold, fold

      UTG bets $0.10, Hero raises to $0.38, fold

      Is raising here fine for protection? Or should I rather play pot control and call?

      Hi,

      raise there is fine- I would not raise larger than 0.3$- you are often ahead and protecting against overcards, also some nitty players would likely b/f their overpairs putting you on sets.

      best regards,
