      CO: $11.55 (57.8 bb)
      BTN: $23.72 (118.6 bb)
      SB: $16.62 (83.1 bb)
      Hero (BB): $23.42 (117.1 bb)
      UTG: $38.53 (192.7 bb)
      MP: $20 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with T Q
      UTG raises to $0.40, 4 folds, Hero calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.90) T Q 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $0.90, Hero raises to $3.60, UTG calls $2.70

      Turn: ($8.10) 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $5.40, UTG raises to $34.53 and is all-in, Hero calls $14.02 and is all-in

      River: ($46.94) 9 (2 players, 2 are all-in)

      No reads on villain.

      Not sure it its ok to call here? we get decent odds, but were oop plus we have no reads or stats on villain. UTG min raise confuses me abit, not sure if some speculative hand trying to keep it cheap, or monster hand trapping

      Preflop is too wide to call imo, you have a weak hand and don't know your opponent enough to outplay him imo. Outplaying means getting value when you hit (not too likely to hit) or win the pot when you both miss (you both miss quite often, you need info to attack where he folds the most which you don't know about).

      As played preflop, I think postflop is fine. I would usually assume your opponent has a hand like AA/KK when he pots it, gets a flat turn and ships it in combined with a small preflop raise to sort of induce a 3bet.
