      Maybe I should call and bluff turn if we leave heads up and he does not barrel? I have GS and if those fish call, its also good for me - implied odds then.

      Hi Speed,

      Preflop: Looks fine since UTG doesn't seem like a midstack regular in which case we'd be creating a great spot for him to shove.

      Postflop: As played I think calling would be a mistake with a shortie behind us. If we had a backdoor flush I can see us calling.

      I think that if you wanted to continue raising to $7 would be a better play but again we have the shortie which would be committed with many pairs/hands.
