      Hero bets $0.70, UTG2 raises to $3.15, Hero raises to $9.55, UTG2 calls $4.30.

      River: ($18.05) K (2 players)


      Final Pot: $18.05.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, jacks and threes(J 3).
      UTG2 shows two pairs, aces and jacks(J A).

      UTG2 wins with two pairs, aces and jacks(J A).

      He has 79bb stack and open limps from utg2. Can I put enough Aces and Aces+flushdraw to his range to justify my shove?

      Hi,


      Probably not. I have no information on villain, but not everybody will pot raise that turn with AhXh or a bare top pair that they floated the flop with, people who limp preflop usually aren't the type to suddenly go nuts with such hands. And you can't entirely discount the fact that he possibly has better 2 pairs combos as well as sets in his range there as well, unless you think he'd raise the flop with some of those.

      I'd probably just get out of the way barring a read that him getting excited like that is quite frequent and nothing to be afraid of, I don't really think it's worth committing another $7 in spot where we're either in real bad shape or not that far ahead against a player who doesn't look like he's aggressive overall.


      Hope it helps.
