      Fold Pre unless the loose opponents are both in the blinds

      BU's range seems to be not too tight, but you made it 4X so I'm not sure how this actually influences his calling range.

      I would definitely barrel a 6 and maybe a 4 because I can fold out hands as strong as AJ and also many gutshots like AQ/T9. On this 9 Turn, QT is improved, QJ/JT may be reluctant to fold too with the straight draw so you must give up.

      Hello faronel,

      Preflop: Fold those hands from UTG, especially if your postflop understanding is rather weak. Even for maximal range to open I'd do it 98s at the best and then decide if I can play those hands profitable accordingly my tracker or evaluations.

      As played
      Postflop: Actually I am not a huge fan of CBetting in first place here. Cause the fold equity + the range which from his calling range continues here is going to be at the best for us break-even. So which means we have to 2nd barrel a lot to make it profitable, though there ain't like tons of cards which we are able to do that and also some reversed implied odds cards. Which would make me rather to just Check/Fold the flop instead. The problem here is that the guy has most of the broadways in his range and a lot of those continue on the flop.

      Best Regards.
