      UTG ($4.38) 110bb
      HERO (UTG+1) ($4) 100bb
      CO ($9.62) 241bb
      BTN ($3.88) 97bb
      SB ($4) 100bb
      BB ($4) 100bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.06, 6 players) HERO is UTG+1 A:spade: Q:heart:
      1 fold, HERO raises to $0.16, CO calls $0.16, BTN raises to $0.28, 2 folds, HERO calls $0.12, CO calls $0.12

      Flop: 4:spade: 4:club: J:spade: ($0.90, 3 players)
      HERO checks, CO checks, BTN checks

      Turn: A:club: ($0.90, 3 players)
      HERO bets $0.48, CO raises to $1.20, BTN folds, HERO folds

      CO=50/33 6h, BU=100/83 6h

      I think, BU is squeezing light. In previous hand, he open-raised 7bb, so he`s definitely a very bad player. CO is probably calling with middle PP or suited picture cards.

      Vs 2 players, I don`t like to bet here. PP`s will never fold, also I can see free turn card very often, as this flop does not hit opponents very often.

      I really did not expect to get raised. Is this a call? I`m getting almost 4:1. I can`t really see, what value hands CO is raising with. He would probably just call with Ax. He might play draws this way, but can`t be sure. I decided to fold, because I did not have any reads or enough hands on him.

      Better safe than sorry.

      If BU likes to 3-bet with worse hands I think you can also 4-bet 1$ and play for stacks, although call is also fine. Postflop I would bet/call turn, since CO can raise there worse Ax hands and also he may be making some kind of move. If you are ahead, then you often also see free showdown at the river.

      best regards,
