      UTG - UTG ($10.15) vpip 11 prf 9 agg% 48 # 271
      UTG+1 - UTG+1 ($10.19)
      MP - MP ($3.70)

      BTN - Hero ($12.13)
      SB - SB ($8.70)
      BB - BB ($10.00)

      Preflop: ($0.15, 8 players) Hero is BTN with Q:diamond: Q:spade:
      UTG raises to $0.30, 4 folds, Hero raises to $0.90, SB calls $0.85, 1 fold, UTG calls $0.60

      Flop: 5:diamond: 7:club: 8:diamond: ($2.80, 3 players)
      SB checks, UTG bets $1.90, Hero raises to $4.50, 1 fold, UTG raises to $9.25 (all-in), Hero calls $4.75

      When I first raised I thought that he'd bet in that position with 99-JJ, so I re-raised to get information with the intention of folding to a re-raise.

      But then I was getting pot odds of 1/4 and decided to call his all in. Do you think it is a good play?

      Turn: 9:club: ($21.30, 2 players, 1 all-in)

      River: 5:spade: ($21.30, 2 players, 1 all-in)

      Hi MrBeast,

      Preflop: looks a bit light in a FR game against such a tight UTG player. His UTG raise is most likely 5-6% at best.

      So I would just call preflop.

      Postflop: As played you have a nit donk/shove on you. Do you really think he'll have that many 99-JJ hands?

      I don't see how you can raise for information. We either raise for value because we think we have the best hand or we do it as a bluff in hopes he folds better. Information is just a byproduct.
