      Turn: ($0.62) J (2 players)
      SB bets $0.40, Hero folds

      villain was unknown, after looking at the hand i thought he may play AQo like that to get protection from an Ax flush draw? I called because i didn't think i could fold on the flop. Turn i folded as i thought his bet size was quite strong

      Hi DrRaab,

      Since we are UTG and it appears that we have a lot of potentially fishy players behind us we can make this bigger preflop (5x).

      Flop: We can call or raise. If we do raise we have to have an idea about what we will do if he raises (fold or go with the hand). If we plan to raise/fold I would rather call to keep his range wide. However at these limits, if villain donks Qx he usually doesn't fold to a raise.

      Turn: The J doesn't change much at all. QJ got two pair but that's it. In fact we picked up a gutshot and he can still bet a club draw or a Qx like this (like you said AQ but also KQ).

      So I would continue calling.
