      Raise to $1,25 preflop because of UTG limper. I would call since UTG folded and the board is drawy and BB is midstack.

      I would fold unless I know he's a donk. You're behind so many hands: AQ, QJ, sets, combo draws, I doubt you have enough equity to call.

      preflop: i would raise to 5$ to put utg allin

      as played
      flop: many hands beat you but also many hands would be semibluffin here
      that's why i call against midstacks

      edit: reload faster to max. buyin

      because he was midstacked your play is justifiable as it was said but you still need to consider his stats. how solid player is he ? would he bet like that on a draw or does he have the goods ? if his AF is low then you can fold here and you can also fold if his vpip is under 10.

      as a matter of fact i am not using ele because it is malfunctioning

      PLUS i have decided that i should not use stats in these limits purely because i should not have to depend on them to beat players of that level. if i am good enough i should advance to higher levels and ONLY THEN will i start using ele as i will be confident in my skills to begin with.

      Due to the fact you don't have stats I'd say it's ok to go broke vs BB because he is a halfstack and the board is very drawy.

      Best regards,
