      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      UTG2:
      $4.13
      MP1:
      $1.84
      MP2:

      $5.08
      BB(Hero):
      $4.82
      UTG1:
      $1.25


      Preflop: Hero is BB with 5, K.
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls $0.02, 3 folds, CO calls $0.02, 2 folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.07) K, 5, J (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.07, UTG2 raises to $0.20, CO folds, Hero raises to $0.60, UTG2 calls $0.40.

      should call? or trying to going broke is fine?

      Turn: ($1.27) 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.63, UTG2 calls $0.63.

      River: ($2.53) 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.63, UTG2 calls $0.63.

      Should play c/c or even c/f turn or river? or just keep betting?

      Hello,

      Flop ain't really a spot where I would like to go broke. I don't mind just Calling his raise and reevaluate turn.

      Best regards,
      Rensu

      Hi,


      I don't think 3betting out of position is horrible even deep, but whether he's good or bad bloating the pot out of position with a hand that looks a lot better than it actually is (because our opponent often has many outs against us) is usually not going to be a good idea, especially if our opponent is very aggressive and thus able to put a ton of pressure on us in position.

      So i'd call and either donk out a blank turn or check/call it depending on how often i think UTG2 continues to bet draws there and how likely he is to raise a donk with them.

      As played i'd bet ~$0.85 on the turn and either check/call or make a small blockbet depends on whether i skew his range more toward busted draws or KQ type of stuff.


      Hope it helps.
