      I would fold it also here.

      You have quite strong hand on this board but there are some problems.
      First when you raise, and get reraised, you are behind and quite have to call because of odds.
      Call is possible but problematic also. There are so few cards that you want to see on turn: every T+ card is a scarecard, every spade and also small cards because they complete possible straights. The only card that you really want to see is 9 of hearts.
      And it is quite sure, that one of your opponents barrels again on turn.

      Hi,


      Without reads on UTG2 you have to assume his raise means exactly what it seems: he's got a bigger overpair than yours, a set or a strong draw with which you're flipping. Since you're out of position with deep stacks and MP2 coldcalled UTG2's raise, which shows massive strength unless he's a donk, it's best to stay away, you're rarely good.


      Hope it helps.
