      BB: $5.89 - VPIP: 30, PFR: 29, 3B: 13, AF: 6.0, Hands: 69
      UTG: $5.07 - VPIP: 34, PFR: 29, 3B: 14, AF: 2.8, Hands: 73

      SB: $12.87 - VPIP: 16, PFR: 9, 3B: 4, AF: 2.5, Hands: 211

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is CO with 7 :club: 7 :spade:
      UTG raises to $0.15, Hero calls $0.15, 3 folds

      Flop: ($0.37) K :heart: K :spade: 2 :spade: (2 players)
      UTG bets $0.20,?

      If I suspsect he's weak, I should raise here to collect dead money, right? Many cards could help him, but almost none is going to help me.

      Hello Imimba1,

      What dead money. :P There is no dead money whilst he has still open-action. :) Though raising could be possible but I don't see any problem with calling whilst also having decent hand.

      Best Regards.

      Well, if we call, an overcard is going to come, which could easily help him. So we need to take the pot asap, not letting him a chance to get better.

      raising here is a very good option in my opinion.
      according to his stats, he doesn't seem the guy who is a nit utg, so we can rightly assume that he also opens a wider range from UTG.
      on this flop, there are not many things he can continue with when we raise, while he will fold a large part of his range, making the move overall profitable. he can mainly continue with Kx and FD, but given the fact that there are 2 kings on board, he doesn't have too many combos of Kx left, only FD, and the chance of flopping a FD is also pretty low, so given the combination of these 2 factors i like a raise in this spot also with any2 cards

      hope it makes sense

      Well as I said already mate, both options are fine. :P If you want to understand more about how often will an overcard come open equilab and play with it.

Or better to just call, and take the pot if he checks/call smallish bet. I'm in position afterall.

      How likely those cards even help him as 8/9/T, he will more likely to have broadways. And as once again I am telling you, both options are fine. :f_biggrin: Like talking to the wall. :D
