      SB: $2.39 (119.5 bb)
      BB: $0.86 (43 bb)
      UTG: $0.87 (43.5 bb)

      CO: $2.88 (144 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A K
      UTG calls $0.02, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.10, 2 folds, UTG calls $0.08

      Flop: ($0.23) T 8 T (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($0.23) A (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $0.12, UTG raises to $0.38, Hero raises to $0.86, UTG calls $0.39 and is all-in

      unknown villain, but looks fishy with stacksize and limping utg. Do you think i am good here often enough to get it in? he could be raising with lots of Ax hands and diamond draws?

      Hey Dr,

      I think checking back flop is OK but I still prefer cbet for thin value. Your equity vs his range is just great here.

      On the turn, I think you should fold or call the raise, mostly fold. It doesn't look like a bluff plus he won't c/r A2 type hands that often. Even if he does, calling is best to keep his range widest. Yes, he has little behind but I've seen people fold for less when I shoved so call IP and then decide river, but best fold imo.
