      Hi,

      Don't think there were many scenarios in which I was folding a pair with 6bb left, but with an open from UTG and a call in front, with both guys relatively tight, I was unsure if I could continue. Heads up I would've went for it, but felt uncomfortable against two. How often does one of them have a higher pair? How good would shove be here with little to no fold equity? Best case scenario is that UTG overshoves and pushes MP out of the pot, but don't know if I can count on it

      Do you think fold is ok here?

      Also, as you can see, UTG ended up stacking off in this hand with what was second pair on the flop. Seemed was very optimistic with 40bb. Is there merit to his play or was it as spewy as I though?

      Thanks!

      The fold seems tight, but you have indeed no fold equity and against 2 tight players a fold is not bad. It’s a variance spot for sure and the change you end up dominated is decent.
