      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      UTG1:
      $36,25
      BU:
      $5,00

      0,1/0,25 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with T:club: , T:heart:
      UTG1 raises to $1,00, 6 folds, SB calls $0,90, BB folds.

      Flop: ($2,25) J:heart: , 7:diamond: , Q:heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, UTG1 bets $1,25, SB folds, UTG1 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2,25

      UTG1 seems pretty loose with 17%PFR. Are my TT good for a push from CO here?

      If I put him on 22+ A8+ KJ+ I get over 20% equity, so it seems good enough.

      Obs.: SB and BB are unkown and BU is pretty tight.

      yes just push. UTG's PFR must be at least 15% for the push to be profitable

      Just use the 3-bet charts from gold member section, which tell you to push. I also wouldn't worry much about players behind you.

      If you use the Elephant POP-up window, you should look at his Raise-1st on Early Position since his PFR can differ greatly on positions. Let's say he raises 40% on the BTN/SB for the sake of stealing while he raises only 3% on Early position. Then Elephant calculates the mean amount and will display it on your hud or this sample hand (the 17 RaisePreFlop ;) )

      Best regards,
