      Blinds: $0.10/$0.25
      6 players
      Converter

      Stack sizes:
      UTG: $12.82
      UTG+1: $65.89
      Hero: $62.89
      Button: $34.47
      SB: $64.19
      BB: $61.56

      Pre-flop: (6 players) Hero is CO with K:diamond: A:heart:
      [color:#cc0000]UTG raises to $0.5[/color], [color:#cc0000]UTG+1 raises to $2[/color], Hero calls, 3 folds, [color:#cc0000]UTG raises to $4[/color], UTG+1 calls, Hero calls.

      Flop: 9:spade: K:heart: 4:spade: ($12.35, 3 players)
      UTG checks, [color:#cc0000]UTG+1 bets $0.25[/color], Hero calls, [color:#cc0000]UTG raises all-in $8.82[/color], UTG+1 folds, Hero folds.
      Uncalled bets: $8.57 returned to UTG.

      Ok, this is a kinda weird hand and I have a few questions. The way the preflop went down I was pretty sure UTG had AA,KK (don’t even think he’d do this with QQ). Two min bets preflop from a bad player UTG definitely means something I think. My first question is whether I should just throw it away preflop after the min raise to 4$ based on what I think his hand range is. I ended up calling because I was getting ridiculous odds and decided that I’d only continue on if an A hit the flop (because then I’m actually beating half his range)

      On the flop I call the min bet because I was trying to control the pot and still thought that UTG had me beat. When he reraised all-in it just fit either Aces or trip Kings so well that I decided to muck. Any thoughts on the pre or post flop play would be greatly appreciated.

      On preflop with a raise and 3bet before you I'd probably fold, if I knew the 3better was a maniac I'd do 4bet/fold maybe. I don't know what about your cold call, I wouldn't do it though.

      I players are tight fold pf, other option would re-raise to 6$ and call UTG shove /fold UTG+1 shove.
      If you decided to call pf, then you have to call on the flop, since you have tptk and UTG has less than potsize left.
