      0.02/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.71 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with K:spade: , K:club:
      UTG1 raises to $0.10, UTG2 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, MP2 calls $0.30, 5 folds, UTG1 calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.97) 2:heart: , 4:heart: , 5:club: (3 players)
      UTG1 checks, Hero bets $0.70, MP2 raises to $1.90, UTG1 folds, Hero...?

      Is it OK to go broke here? the board is super wet and anything from A3 to Axhh or 67 fit calling ranges, but as always villains could also easily be holding 88+ and I've noticed alot of them, specially with JJ/QQ like to call and then go broke if no overcards are present. This certainly could be the case for MP2 and UTG1 as well as a minraise UTG almost always means 88+, AQ+ or worse due to FullTilt's Poker Academy lessons and the JJ/QQ scenario applies here.

      What do you think?

      I think that MP2 is the key and that when in doubt you likely shouldn't fold.

      That being said, if MP2 knows what he's doing (meaning he's not raising there with a crappy pair for "protection" when you bet huge into a fish and himself on that board), you're likely not in great shape against his range.

      Hope it helps.
