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

Flop: 5 7 8 (\$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 (\$21.30, 2 players, 1 all-in)

River: 5 (\$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.
