      With 7:1 pot odds and holding 2 overcards I think could have easily called his turn bet.

      Hello dandycall,

      With a 27bb starting stack, I think you can elect for a call on the Turn, doesn't hurt you.

      So I would call and evaluate :) But if you hit, you have to bet the River.


      Best regards,
      Gerv

      I think you can make an easy c-bet here... You raise UTG, and you probably have AA-KK-QQ-AK. Your oponnents could think like that, and making a c-(bluff)bet is also a way of remaining your initiative, and FE as pré-flop aggressor. And making a 1~1.5/2 potbet, is also a fine way to see the turn.

      Sincerely,

      a nit :D
