      Poker Stars, $0.08/$0.16 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      BB: $17.62 (110.1 bb)
      UTG: $8.99 (56.2 bb)
      MP: $4.49 (28.1 bb)
      CO: $16.12 (100.8 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $26.31 (164.4 bb)
      SB: $15.84 (99 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with Q K
      UTG raises to $0.48, MP calls $0.48, CO folds, Hero raises to $2, 2 folds, UTG calls $1.52, MP folds

      Flop: ($4.72) 5 A 4 (2 players)
      UTG bets $0.64, Hero??

      I have marked UTG as a weak/recreational player.
      What to do on flop when he leads out with such bet?

      Hi gAsheks,

      Preflop: Given that UTG has 50 BB and MP has 28 BB I don't think we need to squeeze here. The likelihood of either shipping it over us is larger with two shorter stacks in the pot. Plus if called we can't do much postflop.

      So I would just call.

      As played and given his stack (and pot size) I think it's best that we let our hand go.
