      Its hard to say anything about this hand without stats or reads. if UTG is a regular player, he would raise pairs and strong broadway hands, so after his reraise I tend towards folding. On his loosest range (22+ and flushdraws )its more or less a coinflip. But when you take away the 66-TT you're almost a 4:1 underdog.
      Summary: you're not ahead of his range, so I would fold here (unless of course I have a read)

      Hi Mrbeast,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: What's the purpose of our raise? Are we looking to get called by worse? If so which worse calls and which raises (in your opinion)?

      I think the purpose of raise is that Ax, 5x, fd, gutshot, 66-TT calls? I would call push only fold if I know he is nitty. Because he can push with fd and overcards, or fd and pair, or 99, TT often.
