      UTG3 was unknown (25/17/0 over 12).

      Preflop: calling in position and though I can be dominated we are both deepstack.

      Flop: floating with gutshot on dry board. Plan was to bet the turn if checked to.

      Turn: picked up a pair and some more equity. His bet was smallish so I decided to raise to fold better Jx/QQ.
      Now that I think about it it seems stupid as I'm now ahead now of most lower PPs and QQ is probably the only hand that beats athat I could fold out.

      Should I just call the turn?

      I see no point in raising the Turn unless you think you can fold out KX. I'm not counting on it though - NL5 players often overplay their top pair hands.

      Just call - You are getting 25% pot odds and I think you should have 25% equity at the very least which is more than enough to justify a call here.
