      Hey Natrilis,

      Preflop call is super borderline. Standard option is to fold here, especially vs TAG villain. True sometimes you make straights/flushes, but you will also flop dominated Js and Ks and lose money.

      Usually best option is to flat flop. The question is - which makes you the most profit here - your implied odds or your fold-equity? Since villain opened UTG and has a cbet flop of only 50% his range is tighter and you likely don't have much fold equity. However if villain does have a strong hand like 2pair/set you will get paid off way more often when you hit.

      Turn check back is fine, unlikely villain is folding after he calls flop raise OOP, and you are unlikely to have the best hand.

      River fold is fine unimproved.
