      Moved up to NL25 today, here is the 1st trouble hand already:

      Party Poker - No Limit Hold'em Cash Game - $0.10/$0.25 Blinds - 9 Players - (LegoPoker Hand History Converter)

      SB: $14.93
      BB: $21.40
      UTG: $29.91
      UTG+1: $4.65
      MP1: $36.11
      MP2: $20.05
      MP3: $17.43
      CO: $28.46
      Hero (BTN): $24.05

      Preflop: Hero is dealt 9 9 (9 Players)
      UTG raises to $0.75, 5 folds, Hero calls $0.75, 2 folds

      Flop: ($1.85) 6 9 Q (2 Players)
      UTG bets $0.75, Hero raises to $4.00, UTG raises to $7.25, Hero calls $3.25

      Turn: ($16.35) T (2 Players)
      UTG bets $5.50, Hero calls $5.50

      River: ($27.35) 5 (2 Players)
      UTG bets all-in for $16.41, Hero folds

      Pot Size: $43.76
      - Do I have to get out of it on flop when he 3 bets?
      - The turncall is OK I guess with my outs to a full house?
      - Do I have to call the riverbet altough I know I'm beaten?

      Tnx guys

      ok, 3xBB bet from UTG, usually that means aces or kings in my opinion (with TT-QQ, AK I think most raises 4x BB). On flop, from his possible hands only QQ and AK/AQ :heart: beats you. I think it's more than possible than he's holding AA/KK with A/K of :heart: here. I think I would go broke here on turn.

      No. Even if all the money goes in after his 3-bet you are getting just about the right price to draw for a FH.

      You have the right price to call on the turn.

      Never call any bet if you know that you are beaten. The question to ask is are you?

      Very villain specific but to many UTG raiser's you only have to worry about AK :heart: ,AJ :heart: and QQ. Some villains may also play AA,KK and AQ (especially ifthey hold the A :heart:) like this so you have to be pretty sure of your villain here before you fold in such a big pot.

      Hi Zeffke!

      I would also raise all-in on the flop because I want to protect my hand. Even if I don't have the best hand I have enough outs to a full house/4oak (on the flop: 7 outs; on the turn: 10 outs).

      Good luck at the tables!
