      PartyGaming - $0.25 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: 124.88 BB
      SB: 37.04 BB
      Hero (BB): 189.76 BB
      UTG: 35.48 BB
      MP: 124.84 BB
      CO: 218.8 BB

      SB posts SB 0.4 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has J:club: A:club:

      UTG raises to 2 BB, fold, fold, fold, SB calls 1.6 BB, Hero raises to 189.76 BB and is all-in, UTG calls 33.48 BB and is all-in, fold

      Flop: (72.96 BB, 2 players) 6:heart: 7:club: 2:spade:

      Turn: (72.96 BB, 2 players) T:diamond:

      River: (72.96 BB, 2 players) 9:heart:

      UTG shows K:club: A:heart: (High Card, Ace) (Pre 71%, Flop 83%, Turn 93%)
      Hero shows J:club: A:club: (High Card, Ace) (Pre 29%, Flop 17%, Turn 7%)
      Hero wins 0 BB
      UTG wins 69.32 BB

      13 hands on UTG, 38 VPiP
      SB 1.5k hands VPiP 15.

      I expect them to fold a lot here, and when they call, I have descent equity on average. Is it ok move? 8.5$ invested, to win 1.25$

      Hey mlatasrb,

      Preflop: IF UTG is fishy (and he appears to be) he may call with worse as well so I think our raise is fine.

      What you can do here is calculate your FE required considering the equity you think you have once called (either by SB or UTG).
