      UTG (€21.76) 109bb
      UTG+1 (€8.68) 43bb
      Hero (CO) (€30.59) 153bb
      BTN (€10.91) 55bb
      SB (€19.71) 99bb
      BB (€20) 100bb

      Pre-Flop: (€0.30, 6 players) Hero is CO 10:club: 10:spade:
      UTG raises to €0.57, 1 fold, Hero calls €0.57, 1 fold, SB calls €0.47, 1 fold

      Flop: 2:spade: 5:heart: K:diamond: (€1.91, 3 players)
      SB checks, UTG checks, Hero???

      utg = 26/20
      SB = 22/15/9 with 13% sqz over 150 hands

      on the flop i expect a ton of folds if i bet out, so the question is bet to make them fold equity or check back and play turns/rivers? 25% of turns will bring overcards and i will most likely end up going into bluffcatching mode which i'm not sure about.

      if TT is a bet to fold out equity, then i think JJ would be the point where i check back... but maybe that's also a bet to fold equity?

      also i'll put the rest of the hand in a spoiler because it was interesting:

      Turn: J:diamond: (€7.71, 2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: 5:spade: (€7.71, 2 players)
      SB bets €4.60, Hero calls €4.60

      his checkraise on the flop makes me feel like i have the nuts even tho he's doing it into 2. i just dont see somebody playing KQ or some set like this. so i call. his check on the turn i think is almost always him giving up, so i check back the turn and hope to check it down. on this really blank river i hate folding so i just made the call - i don't see him doing this with a strong hand.

      Hi Lewis,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Since UTG checks he is unlikely to have a strong hand and there are 2 guys in the pot I don't mind taking a stab and taking down the pot now (plus get them to fold their equity).

      We really don't want to play a guessing game on turn/river.

      As played I agree that his ck/raise looks weird on this board and I would play it the same although 5x is part of his bluffing range.
