      SB: $8.25
      BB: $5.07
      UTG: $4.90
      UTG+1: $1.59
      UTG+2: $7.50
      Hero (MP1): $5.82
      MP2: $11.79

      Pre-Flop: Q:spade: Q:diamond: dealt to Hero (MP1)
      UTG folds, UTG+1 calls $0.05, UTG+2 folds, Hero raises to $0.25, 5 folds, UTG+1 raises to $0.60,

      No solid reads.. I only assumed that his playing the SSS..
      Here in this hand, UTG+1 doesn't really have a big stack so I can probably take a flip here or not (I mean would his range to be too tight for this e.g. KK+ and maybe AK too)? What if he had a big stack.. Can I still call profitably and play postflop from there?

      Thx for any feedback..

      Against a guy with 30bb just shove, it makes no sense to wait until you see a flop with a hand like QQ since it will so rarely help you against KK+, but it will often hurt you against worse hands because stuff like AK will outdraw you a third of the time and stuff like TT-JJ might get scared of big card on the flop and not pay you off anymore.

      I wouldn't really assume he's a shortstacker either, he recently posted the blinds again if he was following a system he should have left, and you'll just see too many fish with weird stacks around at microstakes.

      Hope it helps.
