      With a stack this size, you should be almost off the table, shouldn't you? I reckon reraise preflop, to maybe $100. If he hammers you then, fold. Postflop here, what do you know? He raises with 10% preflop, but from early/middle position, what does that mean? You could be way ahead, or he could have AA, KK.

      You can't fold here without a read since UTG+2 is likely playing 88+ given his flop lead. (AK :heart: :heart: maybe).

      Even if you had re-raised PF UTG+2 would probably have smooth called pf and c/r you on the flop. If you lost this hand it is just a cooler.

      You recognized yourself that you made a mistake preflop. Lets look at the flopplay.

      Thoughts: He raised preflop, what he do with 88+, AQ, AK
      On the flop he makes a half potsize bet after two opponents check to him. That could mean AA, KK to see where he stands (if he gets check/raised by the other two players he had a decision to make) or he wants to keep you in the pot with AKs or AQs, because he is holding a monsterdraw with up to 15 Outs.

      So you raise him here (of course to protect your hand), and he raises you All-In after the other Two folded. He only would do that with AA, KK or AKs and AQs in hearts. I do not see him to do that with TT or JJ, since he does not want to see an Q, K or A then and Hero does not have to call so much here to be all-In. And he will know that you either have an Overpair that you slowplayed preflop (if he isn´t holding one), a Flushdraw with maybe a Madehand or a Set.

      So honestly I think you´re beat here or only have a coinflip.

      According to the Equilator, where I gave Villain the following hands: AKs, AQs, AJs, KK, AA, 88 he gives me that result: You only have 15% Equity but you need at least 25% to be even.

      So lets give our Opponent some more hands. Lets say: 88+, AKs, AQs, AJs and KQs then you would have an Equity of 55%.

      But realisticly we have to eliminate 99, TT and JJ, so with that we have an equity of 18%.

      So for me its a fold here, unless you have other special reads on this player, that he would do this stunts with Air.
