      0,05/0,10 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.8 by www.pokerstrategy.cc.

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with Q:heart: , Q:club: . CO posts a blind of $0,10.
      UTG+1 raises to $0,30, UTG+2 folds, Hero raises to $0,90, 6 folds, UTG+1 calls $0,60.

      Flop: ($2,05) K:diamond: , 6:diamond: , K:spade: (2 players)
      UTG+1 checks, Hero bets $1,20, UTG+1 raises to $2,40, Hero calls $1,20.

      Turn: ($6,85) 2:diamond: (2 players)
      UTG+1 bets $5, Hero folds.

      Final Pot: $11,85

      I think that UTG could make that kind of play also on lower pocket pairs (JJ-88), maybe also on AJ, AQ, so I decided to call the flop. On the turn flush draw also complited, so I lay my hand down

      Hi Kaitz20!

      Well played! Slightly more than half potsize bet on the flop is correct because it's a typical way ahead/way behind situation. You have to call the minraise because you probably still have the best hand. On the turn the flushdraw completes and his nearly potsize bet means that he has a stronger hand than your QQ. Nice hand!

      Good luck at the tables!
