      Pre-Flop: ($0.15, 6 players) cozacu is UTG+1 A:diamond: Q:heart:

      UTG bets $0.10, cozacu raises to $0.80, UTG goes all-in $3.12, cozacu calls $2.42

      Turn: Q:club: ($6.79, 2 players, 1 all-in)

      River: 10:spade: ($6.79, 2 players, 1 all-in)

      Villain 51/15 af 4.0 cbet 50 ftcbet80 (9.5 3bet) 54hands

      The way i saw the hand was, i clearly thought that villain can go bust here with a worst hand(PP against witch we are a favourite), if i just called and a diamond comes it most likely just kills my action and chance to take what villain got behind. If he has a hand like JJ, i still have 15outs, against most Kx i still have 12outs.

      I also put some presure on PP by raising, vs witch i would have a more difficult time on a unimproved turn.

      Do you agree with raise/broke here?

      Hi Cozacu,

      Preflop: Since UTG is so short why are we not 3-betting this preflop?

      As played I don't mind 3-bet/calling but I'd make it slightly bigger. Against all Kx/QQ (non AK) we are a flip and against any other pairs we are a slight favorite.
