      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is BB with K :diamond: Q :heart:
      UTG raises to $0.06, 4 folds, Hero ?
      Call, and check/fold unimproved? Looks so weak. But even if we get a K and Q and face heavy aggression, it's gonna be ugly. Or I'm just too pessimistic? :f_mad:

      Hi Imimba1,

      I think this is a fold and it's not even close.

      I'd advise you to develop a 3bet/fold strategy Blinds vs UTG open. It is easier to play and you're not that face up on the flop with weak range vs strong UTG range and OOP.

      Best regards
