      no hud,
      utg is straight forward reg who doesn't like to play big pots with mediocre hands.
      sb uknown
      bb loose player who likes to float but doesn't go easily broke.

      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.10(BB) Replayer
      SB ($6.41)
      BB ($10.56)
      UTG ($10.31)
      UTG+1 ($8.20)
      CO ($7.11)
      Hero ($12.69)

      Dealt to Hero 6:spade: 5:spade:

      UTG raises to $0.30, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.30, SB calls $0.25, BB calls $0.20

      FLOP ($1.20) 4:spade: 8:diamond: 7:heart:

      SB bets $0.10, BB raises to $0.50, UTG folds, Hero raises to $1.40, SB calls $1.30, BB calls $0.90

      TURN ($5.40) 4:spade: 8:diamond: 7:heart: 4:heart:

      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $3.20, SB folds, BB folds

      Hero shows 6:spade: 5:spade:

      Hero wins $5.04

      Since we have 2 players in on the flop I think raise is a must. What is correct amount here? I was thinking about it and suddenly there was 4,3,2 seconds and I typed super smallish raise. At least it's a rainbow flop so only GS and OESD are possible.

      Turn play was bad amount when I look now. Better would be something like $2,60 to get at least one caller. With this bet I commit myself even in his eyes.

      I don't like this hand and I'm not sure why.

      Hello,

      I prefer folding here preflop. We are crushed by UTG's range and this hand is likely to put us in a big trouble postflop.

      On the flop I like raising. We have the nuts and we want to build the pot and you could go for $1.7-$1.8 here.

      I do agree that we can bet smaller on the turn as well.
      Their ranges are rather weak plus even if we bet 1/2 pot we can still shove the river.

      Best,
      Plamen
