      Stacks:
      UTG ($23.59) 118bb
      CO ($21.09) 105bb
      hero (BTN) ($20) 100bb
      SB ($20) 100bb
      BB ($28.34) 142bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.30, 5 players) hero is BTN A J
      UTG raises to $0.60, 1 fold, hero calls $0.60, 2 folds

      I can't 3B for value but i'm ahead of MP's raise range.
      The blinds aren't squeezehappy and looking at MP wts i though i can still make a move if i don't hit.

      Flop: K 5 4 ($1.50, 2 players)
      UTG bets $1.30, hero raises to $3.60, UTG calls $2.30

      MP has still a high AF on turn so i decided not to float but rather raise right away.

      Turn: 2 ($8.70, 2 players)
      UTG checks, hero ???

      Was not sure if i should use this turn to rep a flush.
      Can MP still fold maybe Kx?

      Heya,

      Calling pre, esp OTB seems fine vs a wide MP range, could 3bet if he folded less to 3bets or 4bet less.

      Postflop, just fold flop. You literally have nothing, probably one of the worst hands in your range equity wise apart from what... QJcc, T9cc, 89cc (or hearts). Otherwise you'd have plenty of backdoors or gutshots + pairs to play back with. I think AJcc is just way too weak here, even vs a wider than average UTG range. Keep in mind he will have KT type hands a lot when he is wider so he has more Kx hands than a tighter opponent that folds KT type hands.

      Once you get called, turn is just no way to play well.. you could try and rep a flush to make him fold Kx but at the same time he has some flushes in his range and you are drawing dead so often.. I don't think you have enough equity to bluff here since he fold just straight up fold enough of the time given maths. you also have to shove all rivers to rep the flush ofc so you are risking that other bet too.
